On the 5th of August 2018, an awareness meeting about psychological diseases has been held in coordination with Zhyan organization attended by 20 women from Hawkari area in Erbil.
The meeting discussed the effect of psychological diseases on people, its symptoms, and behaviors shown by the person and how to solve their problems to reach a positive balance in life.
Hawkari Center is run by Emma Organization for Human Development. As the center was handed over by the Ministry of Education in 2015 to Emma Organization as it was suffering from a lack of educational and cultural services among women and young girls in the area. However, Emma Organization has now transformed the center into a safe place and a place where women learn new skills and further their skills into financial support.
The center also delivers free courses in literacy, sewing, social activities and awareness sessions on different subjects. The beneficiaries are all women of the surrounding areas including IDPs and refugee women who are currently residing there.
