CHRAJ worried about upsurge of child rights abuse

 

Kumasi, April 24, GNA - The Commission on Human Rights and Administration Justice (CHRAJ) has expressed worry about the upsurge of child rights abuse and appealed to parents to show more commitment and responsibility towards the protection of children.


    It said it had in recent times been inundated with complaints of non-maintenance of children and other forms of violation of child rights.


    Mr Anthony Aduku Aidoo of the Public Education Unit of the CHRAJ said these mainly involved the denial of education, shelter and medical care.


    The Commission, he said, has been doing everything to deal with the cases to enhance the wellbeing of the affected children.


    He said this when addressing a day’s seminar organized for the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) branch of the Tertiary Advocate for the Rights of Children (TARC) in Kumasi.


    TARC is a right- based student organization, working to promote the welfare and development of children and the seminar was held under the auspices of Child’s Rights International (CRI).


    Mr Aidoo said despite the various policies and legislations put in place to protect children, worse forms of child abuse still persisted in the country and that CHRAJ would continue to act in concert with all stakeholders to tackle challenges impeding the development of children.


    Mr Bright Appiah, Executive-Director of CRI, urged members of TARC to work hard and with passion to highlight issues bordering on child rights.
