Stop attacks on children
It is celebrated on 4 June annually to highlight the pain suffered by children across the world who are the victims of physical, mental, and emotional abuse. The day affirms the commitment of the UN to protect the rights of children.
The day celebrates the millions of individuals and organizations working to protect and preserve the rights of children. For example, the Global Movement for Children leadership from Nelson Mandela, etc. Another campaign namely the “Say Yes for Children” is endorsed by more than 94 million people. The campaign calls for ten positive actions to be taken to improve the lives of children.
It is sad reality that in some situations children are affected and violations that occur may be use of children in war, killing, sexual violence, abduction, attacks on schools etc.
This day wants to make people aware in the whole world about the impact of cruelty or abuse was done with children in all its forms. Also, to protect children’s rights this day make organizations and individuals learn and take part in the campaign.
