During these Patron Saint Festivities, and more specifically the afternoon of the Maki and María Artés concert, Mazarrón had for the first time a 'Violet Point'.
The City Council of Mazarrón, through the Councilor for Celebrations, Social Policy and Equality, Miguel Ángel Peña, and in coordination with the Councilor for Health, Francisco José García and the Councilor for Youth, Silvia García;
They promoted, together with the Red Cross, the installation of this point of information, awareness and prevention of sexist attitudes and behaviors against women.
In the tents set up for this, 9 Red Cross volunteers met, including a doctor and two psychologists.
Likewise, the volunteers assigned to the 'Violet Point' had received the necessary information on gender-based violence to know first-hand the situations that may occur in regard to this social problem.
The point had an information and awareness stand and a booth for the attention of possible victims, since this point is also a space for security and support for victims of sexist or sexist violence.
The Center for Attention to Victims of Gender Violence (CAVI) also had various information on the stand so that those who approached the point knew the work of this service of the session.
But it has not been the only action that the City Council and Red Cross have promoted these employers' parties since, coinciding with the World Day to Fight AIDS, Red Cross volunteers reported the effects of this disease and how to prevent it , as well as other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).
The volunteers also proceeded to distribute prophylactics among those who approached the stand to ask questions or request information.
