Today, a significant number of IDPs turned up to attend a theatrical event organised by UNAMID's Public Information Division in Al Salam IDP camp just outside of El Fasher, North Darfur. The occasion was part of a venture by the Public Information division to raise awareness about gender-based violence (GBV), an exceedingly relevant issue in IDP camps across Darfur.

The day-long event featured plays and dances by drama troupes whose members were also IDPs from the camp. UNAMID distributed information about GBV and domestic violence in an effort to start dialogues. The audience was made up mostly of women and youth, the majority of whom arranged to attend later activities organised for the campaign.

Other drama productions as well as sports matches and group discussions are planned for the coming days until the end of the campaign on 31 December.
