Pope Francis calls for special attention to children
Vatican City, Jun 12 (Prensa Latina) Pope Francis said today that children are the future of the human family and it is the task of everyone to promote their growth, health and serenity.
The Supreme Pontiff made this statement in a brief message published on his Twitter account @Pontifex_es, on the occasion of the World Day against Child Labor, an annual commemoration approved by the International Labor Organization (ILO) in 2002 to raise awareness about this scourge and seek ways to eliminate it.
Act now: end child labor! Is the theme of this year's observance, which takes place for the second consecutive year in the complex circumstances imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
