HÀ NỘI — Dozens of children joined a painting festival aiming to prevent childhood sexual abuse, held on Sunday by the Central Council for the Young Pioneers in Hà Nội.

In their pictures, the children expressed different ways they can prevent sexual abuse and call for the community to join hands in protecting children.

They also studied knowledge and skills to prevent and control children sexual abuse.

While attending the event, Đào Hồng Lan, Deputy Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and deputy chairwoman of the council, praised the festival’s efforts.

The ministry, with approval from the Government, has set up the phone number 18001567 as the national hotline for protecting children.

The ministry sent letters to provincial and municipal departments of labour, invalids and social affairs to ask for co-oporation in protecting youth from harm, she said. — VNS
