Manila, Philippines – Welcome sa Commission on Human Rights (CHR) ang pagpayag na makalabas ang mga bata sa mga lugar na nasa ilalim ng general community quarantine (GCQ) at modified GCQ (MGCQ).

 “Children have the right to leisure, play, and recreational activities. This is crucial to their development and well-being while also enabling their participation in the community’s cultural, social, and artistic life,” saad ni spokesperson Jacqueline Ann de Guia.

Aniya, may negatibong epekto rin sa mga bata ang ipinapatupad na quarantine restrictions.

 “Allowing young people to safely go outdoors will enable social interaction instead of just being glued on their digital devices. Outdoor activities will also revive their physical and mental vitality by being more engaged in the cultural and social life.”

“More importantly, the outdoor ambiance, opportunity to access diverse recreational and leisure activities, and quality social engagement, can help maintain their well-being and mental health. Considering that face-to-face classes are still not allowed, outdoor activities can also help provide balance to the children’s confined remote learning routine,” giit pa nito.

 “The preservation of the children’s wellbeing and dignity is a collective responsibility. We must still ensure that children will suffer no further harm and that their best interest and basic rights are prioritized as we continue to hurdle through this pandemic.” RNT/FGDC
