Judy Community Centers - Duhok

Moreover, the community centers organized numerous external activities and events aimed at promoting communication and strengthening community relations. Various outdoor events, such as ceremonies and exhibitions, were held.
The community centers also provided awareness sessions covering topics related to child and women protection, as well as essential health and social issues, including unemployment and child labor. These sessions aimed to increase awareness, enhance knowledge among the targeted community, and provide necessary information to protect the rights of children and women and improve their health, social, and professional conditions.
