This Hotline Is Tackling Violence Against Girls in Drought-Hit Kenya

Abdi Buhad is part of a group of women and men – drawn from community members, police officers, journalists, health workers, and non-governmental organisations, among others – who last year set up a gender support desk and hotline in Wajir for victims of violence.
