The Council of Europe will organize two artistic workshops with children in Balti (29/05/2021) and Cahul (1/06/2021) to celebrate Children’s Day, through play and drawing activities with children and their parents.
In addition, on 4th of June the International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression will be marked by launching a mural in the Valea Morilor Park, in Chisinau.
All three events aim to raise awareness of children on child abuse, including in the online environment, prevention measures, as well as to encourage children to report any kind of physical or verbal abuse.
