MANILA, Philippines – Nakiisa ang United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund o UNICEF sabay ng pangako nito na walang batang maiiwan kasabay ng selebrasyon ng World Children’s Day.

Sa pamamagitan ng isang aktibidad, nagtipon-tipon ang mga magulang, bata at civil society groups kasama ni UNICEF Philippines Ambassador at artista na si Anne Curtis na nangakong iingatan ang karapatan ng mga bata.

“I’ve always had a heart for children because they are the ones who are most vulnerable, and they need our help. And this is even before I became a mother. They are our future generation and they need our help,” ani Curtis.

Sinabi naman ni Niko Wieland, UNICEF Philippines chief of communications, na dapat ay payagan ang mga bata na magsalita lalo na kung ito ay patungkol sa kanilang ikabubuti.

“We are celebrating today the rights of children, the right to participate, the right to speak up. Children are among the most affected from the pandemic and we are coming out of hard times for children, so it’s time to celebrate now and we need to give children their voice back and they are active participants of society,” aniya.

“Children have been in evacuation centers due to exposure to natural disasters and they have to also get back to their normal lives after a two-year long pandemic, which has excluded them from face to face learning.
Let children speak up on matters, on issues that matter most to them, so in the Philippines you know this is one of the country that is most affected by natural disaster,” pagtatapos ni Weiland. RNT/JGC
