UNICEF concerned about acts against children

In Monday’s newscast, we showed you the protest by Fathers Against Sexual Exploitation and Abuse of Children. Today, UNICEF says it is extremely concerned about the increasing number of violent acts perpetuated against children. The two most recent cases involve a four-year girl who was raped and a seven year old who was abused by her own father. UNICEF says that every child has the right to a life, free from violence. The organization urges government to take serious steps to implement the recommendations of the Study of Violence Against children and adopt a plan with realistic and time-bound targets. According to UNICEF, “This Plan of Action should be linked to the National Plan of Action for Children and should also be integrated into national planning processes. It should identify clear responsibilities of agency and coordination mechanisms that can bring multiple sectors together.”

    So the rape continues, I guess the father with the seven year old daughter saw that the man that rape the four years old was release after 48 hours and decided he can get away with it. Belizeans wake up…Sick men are robbing our kids future and dreams…do something…UNICEF your doing an amazing job.

    This has been happening from since I was a child. Wake up belize, most of the time it is the Dad, cousin, uncle, close friend of the family know as uncle or auntie. Begin to talk to your children about it not being ok for someone to touch the private parts of their bodies. Talk!! not just once but often. Tell them what to do if someone touches them wrong and be prepard to STAND UP FOR THEM. Let them know that not even Daddy or Uncle should touch them. We as Parents much take charge at home, be aware of the happenings in the house and ask your children if anyone is doing them anything, don’t wait for them to come to you. UNICEF, blessing and success. Belizean Judicial system, take offenses against our children seriously, our damaged children will soon be a part of Society, we reep what we sow. be careful of what you are sewing for our future belize. An unpunished crime corrupts the entire nation. God Bless the Belizean people.

    I have a good idea: Ladies start off with being a good example in your dress! How shameful it is walking around in the streets with your”(almost every private part showing)”. You will not accomplish anything with your so called protests and campaigns this way.
