Awareness program

Salaseini Moceiwai
Wednesday, June 04, 2014

LOCAL counselling agency Empower Pacific will today take to the streets of Labasa their awareness programs against violence and abuse of children as part of the International Day for Innocent Children Victims of Aggression.

Themed — Save a child today, better hope for tomorrow — the agency's Labasa branch manager Nanise Waqamailau said it was crucial for people to recognise the value of our children.

"Regrettably, some children still become victims of physical, mental and emotional abuses," she said

"We are using the day to encourage our communities to come up with ideas and solutions of alleviating child abuse in all its forms. This day affirms the commitment by all UN states to protect the rights of children," she said.
