It is always important to be able to acknowledge support, all the more when the donor is a discreet, committed one. Since day one, UNIFEM recognised the atrocity of acid crime in Pakistan and decided to help bring a sustainable change with regard to acid violence. At SAARC meeting, UNIFEM emphasised the need to implement CEDAW and fight at a regional level against acid violence.
Today, UNIFEM is supporting all the legal consultation in Pakistan to redraft the ACCPB; with such collaboration, eradicating acid violence CAN become a dream come true…
This consultation meant to give a legal technical path to redraft the ACCPB…
25 participants attended the consulatation and suggested various ways forward: specific law on acid, implementation and monitoring mechanism.
The new ACCPB will be the result of this first consultation and will be reviewed by a group of NGOs, stakeholders and legal experts as Acid Survivors Foundation is committed to promote democratic and peaceful processes. We will certainly keep you updated and share the agenda of our second meeting: do not miss here!
