Children's view on abuse

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, June 05, 2014

HUNDREDS of people from all walks of life converged on Labasa's Civic Centre to be part of the Empower Pacific organised International Day for Innocent Children Victims of Aggression celebration yesterday.

Apart from the awareness programs, students from various primary and secondary schools in Macuata had the opportunity to compete and share their views on violence and abuse against children.

Vunimoli Islamia College orator Mosese Mamafainoa, who won the contest in the secondary division, kept the crowd on their feet with his informative and energetic presentation.

Mr Mamafainoa said the four major categories of child abuse was neglect, physical, emotional or psychological and sexual abuses.

Acting principal welfare officer Northern Timaima Gavidi said it was important for children to know their rights and responsibilities.
