STOP! To the violence against children

The First Children’s Embassy in the World- Megjashi started a campaign against the violence over children in Macedonia 

Stirred by the last cases of  almost to death beaten children, as well as by the devastating increase of number of calls regarding violence (18,6%  in 2006 while only 2% in 2000y.) on our SOS helpline for children and youth 0800 1 22 22 (toll-free), we have decided to start a campaign for raising the public awareness for the need of child protection from every form of violence, also to appeal the public to report the violence. Divided in different location around the centre of Skopje, starting form the beginning of February, 15 billboards with different messages can be seen: “Have you hugged your child today?” and "STOP! To the violence against children”.
