Luanda — The secretary of State for Family and Promotion of Women, Ana Paula Sacramento, said last Sunday that the intensive divulgence of the Law on Domestic Violence has been contributing to the increase in the number of denunciations that reach the concerned authorities.
Ana Paula Sacramento, who was speaking at the launching of the Sixteen-day Campaign against Gender Violence, said that in some areas violence is decreasing, because people are attentive and there is more and more divulgence of the law.
She explained that campaigns against violence have been done through sensitization works, which have had the support of the ruling party's female wing (OMA).
"The idea is that if in one street there is an average of 15 cases of violence per day, then it has to go down to none", she stressed.
She also emphasised that the sensitisation work must be strengthened so that each child can grow in an environment without violence, appealing to parents and guardians to consider their neighbour's children as their own.
On her turn, the MP Genoveva Lino said that the fight against violence has to be continuous and the whole society must be involved.
The Sixteen-day Campaign against Gender Violence will end on December 10, Human Rights' Day.
