8 March was International Women’s Day, commemorating women’s struggle for equal opportunities in society and their comprehensive personal development.
The Ared Foundation has spent 25 years striving to secure the social and labour integration of people at a risk of social exclusion, principally women from correctional facilities and social services.
The MartiDerm Hands for Help charitable work, in keeping with its charity brief, was keen to do its bit on International Women’s Day, helping the inmates of the Wad-Ras and Brians women’s prisons. We reached out to the Ared Foundation to distribute cream to women seeking a new opportunity in society, providing them with two face care products: a contour gel and a moisturiser.
We are proud to have taken part in the event organised with the Wad-Ras women’s facility and the Ared Foundation. Numerous activities, including a fashion show and the prize-giving ceremony for the annual Ared awards for the most empathetic, hardest-working and solidarity-minded inmates, etc., were organised this year.
Thank you for allowing us to take part in this special day, along with the brave women seeking a new chance.
