Au Mali, un numéro vert pour les femmes battues

telephone.jpg

Une ligne verte pour répondre aux agressions dont sont victimes les femmes. En composant le 80 00 11 32. Elles pourront les signaler gratuitement à la police. La ligne verte va leur permettre d'être orientées vers les cliniques pour leur prise en charge médicale et psychologique. Le lancement de ce numéro d'alerte a lieu hier à la direction générale de la police nationale à Bamako. Désormais toute femme qui est violentée ou se trouve face à une situation de violence peut appelée à ce numéro et sera secouru par la autorités locales. Une belle initiative, il ne reste qu'à espérer que les femmes feront bonne usage de ce numéro.

A green line to respond to aggressions whose victims are women. They can report for free to the police. The green line is going to let them be oriented to the clinics for their medical and psychological care. The launching of this number of alert held yesterday at the General Directorate of National Police in Bamako. From now on all the women who are raped or faced a situation of violence can call this number and be rescued by the local authorities. A great initiative, only we hope that women will use the number in its proper way.

That is a great idea. I hope the number will be well-advertised so that women who need it know about the service.

This is a very important initiative that I hope will give women the support they need after a traumatic experience. I, like the earlier writer, hope that the initiative is well advertised, so that women know about it.

with kindness,
