On 30 March 2023, CARE International in Lao PDR together with the Lao Federation of Trade Unions held a closing ceremony for Protection and Choice for Marginalized Urban Women in Vientiane Capital, Champasack and Savannakhet provinces, Phase III. The meeting was held to summarize the evaluation results of the project implementation in the 3 target provinces.
