“Ana Ahlam”: GBV in Palestinian Refugee Camps (documentary film)
In partnership with UNRWA and the General Union of Palestinian Women in Lebanon, ABAAD launched “Ana Ahlam”, a 15-minute documentary that depicts the lives of Palestinian women victims of GBV in refugee camps in Lebanon.
Through this resource, ABAAD’s aim is to raise awareness about women’s rights, and to empower women to speak up against violence. Since this is the first ever documentary to be created from within the Palestinian refugee community, it is more suited to reach its audience to address GBV in the community, and combat it.
Over 150 people attended the launching ceremony at Hotel Monroe, including ambassadors from Switzerland, Mexico, and Iran, represented by their cultural attachés, and numerous activists and representatives from the Palestinian community in Lebanon.
ABAAD then screened the documentary coupled with a discussion session at different events, notably on
International Women’s Day at the WPC at the Burj Barajneh Palestinian Camp.
