GOPA-DERD’s team celebrates World Children’s Day
Many countries around the world celebrate World Children’s Day on the 20th of November each year, to highlight on children’s rights and focus on their care and well-being.
It serves as a reminder of the importance of protecting children from all forms of abuse and exploitation, ensuring their rights to health, education, play, and comprehensive care.
