Our activities in March 2022

March was a very active month for Ekaterina Karavelova Foundation team.

In the beginning of the month we did a meeting with experts from the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy to discuss opportunities for cooperation and basic women’s problems that are part of our work. More about the topics of the meeting you can read here.

On March 8th we held the event “Women for peace” at the Vienna Pavilion in the Tsar Simeonova Garden in Plovdiv. The purpose of our initiative was to focus the attention on the important role women have in peacemaking in the context of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

At the end of the month we did a very useful and interesting discussion with experts  on the topics of the effects of long COVID-19 on women’s health and the mental health of women. The conversation happened as part of the event “Health: from women to women”. Laska Nenova from BG Be Active and psychotherapist Desislava Ivanova shared their professional and personal experience on the topics. You can see the whole discussion in the video:
