International Street Children Day observed

Karachi—DevCon-an Association for Rural Development organized a rally on the occasion of International Street Children Day in order to highlight the plight of the street children.
The rally was organized outside the KPC on Tuesday where a large number of people participated. On the occasion, Project Coordinator DevCon, Khan Muhammad Mangi said that the day was observed to create public awareness about children’s plight.
Growing population, unorganized urbanization, abject poverty and men-made and natural disasters have forced, catalyzed and enhanced the people’s vulnerability and left the children to live and work on the streets, he added.
He further said that Sindh government had passed the Sindh Child Protection Authority Act-2011 and the body was notified in November 2014, since the rules of business had not been formulated, he said adding government should take immediate steps to resolve this issue.—APP
