Children are like little angels. They bring endless amounts of joy, love and kindness. Every single child is a reward and blessing.
Children have the right to grow up in a safe and supportive family and to have opportunities that assist them to reach their full potential. All children have the right to be protected from harm.
International Day for Protection of Children is celebrated in many countries around the world to honor children and raise awareness of children's rights.
The Day was established by the Women's International Democratic Federation during its 1949 congress in Moscow. The first celebration took place on June 1, 1950.
Azerbaijan will also celebrate the International Children's Day.
