003-19 that aims to establish VAWC
desk at the barangay hall and a launch protocol in handling VAWC
cases in the said barangay.
Most of the cases were related to domestic violence, said Manager VAWC
Sana Javed while giving briefing to Commissioner Multan Iftikhar Sahu, here on Saturday.
So, if the employee in one year is pregnant and gives birth, has a gynecological disease, is a solo parent and a victim of VAWC

Government representatives promised they would begin to implement the law starting from Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, and Bahawalpur - using and restructuring existing shelter homes (Darul Amans) to designate them as VAWCs

Comprising a shelter home for affected victims, the VAWC
will promote gender equality in the region and will protect women from physical, emotional and psychological abuse.
