An awareness programme titled ‘Stop Child Abuse’ was held at Heoda Siri Indirasara Vidyalaya in Ampara, recently.

The event was organised by a Non-Governmental Organisation called ‘Nintavur Best of Young’, in collaboration with the Ampara District Secretariat. “Child Abuse cases are on the rise due to the lack of awareness regarding the matter, and how it impacts society. Every day, we hear at least one such case in the country.

This must end, and the perpetrators must be brought to book,” Organisation President I.M. Nismy said.
