Abaad sharing number against domestic violence #حجر_مش_حجز

So what happens when you are part of a couple where there is a case of domestic violence? When you had a respite where he was at work but are now on lockdown with him at all hours of the day? Where you have no more break and desperately need an emotional refuge. Abaad is launching an initiative where people are encouraged to share its hotline on April 16 at 6 PM (the line is 81788178). A lot of women do not know this number or are aware of its existence. Well, we certainly live in challenging times and any such initiative helps. The tag is #حجر_مش_حجز which roughly translates into "lockdown not lock up".
