Local News: Sri Lankan actress Dinakshie Priyasad has joined leaders and celebrities from across the Commonwealth for the first-of-its-kind ‘Commonwealth Says NO MORE‘ campaign against domestic and sexual violence.
The Commonwealth Secretariat and NO MORE Foundation have launched the campaign designed to help tackle the immediate crisis of the rapid increase in domestic and sexual violence due to the impacts of COVID-19, while also providing support for governments, organizations and individuals to confront this issue through longer-term prevention strategies and support.
