Children are the cute buds of our society. They have the most innocent hearts. But any stain on their childhood makes a vast impact on their lives and on country’s future too. Because children are the foundation of every country’s future.
The United Nation announced 4th June as “International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression” and the day is observed since 1982. The main purpose behind this is to help the children who are going through any mental, physical or emotional abuse. The day was dedicated, by the UN committee, to protection of rights of children and acknowledgement of their pain.
There are many organizations which have come ahead to help these children. Here we are sharing a few:
