JMEC supports women workshop on ceasefire accord

JMEC, the community outreach unit of the United Nations mission’s public information office, Wipe My Tears Foundation and the ceasefire monitoring body (CTSAMM) are organizing the event.

Officials said the workshop aims at engaging women and vulnerable groups in discussing ways to empower them and better understand the IGAD-led ceasefire accord signed last December, in order to help in its implementation and effect positive change among communities in the country.

Last year, the warring parties attending the High Level Revitalization Forum in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, signed the Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians and Humanitarian Access, billed as an important first step in the revitalization of the peace process.

    Wipe My Tears Foundation is just another useless enterprise created to waste donor funds. Nobody from within seems to have the balls to confront the regime.
