Minister advises citizens to be child-friendly

Home Affairs Minister Vaden Williams has said that government will continue to develop programs to help in the prevention of child abuse. Williams made the statement in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month. CAP month is recognized around the world in April.  Williams said he was happy to join the Department of Social Development, which falls under Home Affairs, in their activities to commemorate the month and sensitize the public on issues surrounding child abuse. “It is important not only because of the timeline but also to help with  prevention strategies.”

He added that children were the nation’s “most precious jewels” and said citizens should “strive to create a child-friendly environment to ensure every child feels safe in their surroundings.”
