Today's posting is not about any of the HIV families I'm dealing with.
Instead, since a few NGOs in Perak have been invited to join a committee to deal with women, children and social issues, I've been roped in to be in the organising committee for a few seminars and campaigns. The first was a seminar on Domestic Violence held in May this year.
I'm sure many of us have heard a lot of campaigns like "Say NO to Violence Against Women" and the likes. But if you'd notice, those who take part in those campaigns are mostly women. Let's target the MEN. So yes, our next event is the launch of the "Men Against Violence" campaign.
