ABAAD on MTV - Celebrities Duets
In 2015, Lebanese TV presenter and radio talk show hostess Sana Nasr took part in MTV’s Celebrity Duets, which featured a number of public figures from the MENA region. Each celebrity chose one cause that they wanted to support by donating their winnings from the show.
Having heard of our work, Sana selected ABAAD due to her “own personal commitment to survivors of gender-based violence, and given the fact that ABAAD offers services that no other organisation in Lebanon offers, including a holistic approach to treating the problem of gender-based violence through taking both facets of the problem into consideration: empowering women and providing them with the needed services, and engaging men in ending violence against women and work on masculinities.”
Sana presented her share of winnings to ABAAD’s safe housing programme that offers protection to women and girl survivors of sexual and gender-based violence at a small reception we held at ABAAD to honour Sana and express our sincere gratitude!
