United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare.
Child Rescue New Zealand believes Universal Children’s Day should inspire each of us to advocate for children to be free from slavery, and take actions that will build a better world for children.
On Wednesday, November 20th Child Rescue will celebrate Universal Children’s Day by bringing you some special stories about what it is doing to rescue and restore children caught up in the horrible world of sexual exploitation and to keep them free.
Tune in to Radio Rhema at 10.30 am to hear a special interview with Thailand based Karen, International Human Resource Manager for Child Rescue.
Karen will talk with Diane Campbell on Rhema and later with Lizzie Oakes on Southern Star about her work in recruiting and training volunteers for Child Rescue’s aftercare programmes, in prevention work and on special projects.
