Brief Description


The campaign "It is possible to break the circle of violence without shattering the cycle of life" was run for two weeks during November 2008. The campaign used posters, radio, and television and focused on the 70 Centers for prevention and treatment of domestic violence. The slogan of the campaign - "It is possible to break the circle of violence without shattering the cycle of life" - was accompanied by the main message: before things get out of hand, coming to the center might assist families to deal with violence, without causing major upheaval or worse.
