Get on Board. Stop child abuse now! by UNICEF Malaysia.

UNICEF Malaysia website – October 2010
Get on Board. Stop Child Abuse Now!

“We need to raise public awareness of the devastating effects of child abuse and empower and encourage people to become personally involved and support families and parents so that we can prevent all forms of child abuse from affecting the lives of children in Malaysia.” -- Mr. Hans Olsen, UNICEF Representative to Malaysia

Did you know that in 2008, an average of 7 children in Malaysia were reported to be abused every day?

Putting an end to child abuse is a shared responsibility. Each of us must learn more about what we can do individually and within our communities to prevent child abuse. The 'Get on Board' peoples’ campaign is a two-month initiative by UNICEF to provide the Malaysian public with a platform to learn and respond to child abuse in the country. Get on board today and join UNICEF to end child abuse. United, we can make a difference.
