Pope appeals for children’s rights
November 16, 2016
In a message for the Universal Children’s Day, which will be observed on November 20, Pope Francis has called for vigilance in protecting the young, especially against military recruiters and human traffickers.
In his statement the Pope asked for worldwide recognition “that children always be protected and their wellbeing safeguarded, so that they never fall prey to forms of slavery, recruitment for armed groups, and maltreatment.” He went on to say that governments should guarantee access to education for all children.
