Elections

 

Some children from Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe have expressed their views on Children’s Day and their rights by saying abuse, access to clean water, drug addiction, and feelings of neglect are their biggest concerns.

South African singer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Yvonne Chaka Chaka, has made a passionate appeal for the protection of children during the march to raise awareness of the sub-regional celebrations of World Children's Day taking place tomorrow in Walvis Bay.

Yvonne also called on governments to be more involved in supporting organisations working to fight for street children.

During a dinner on Friday, the internationally acclaimed singer called on representatives of the private sector to invest in the protection, empowerment, and education of children.

The gala dinner was hosted by the Mayor of Walvis Bay, Trevino Forbes, for World Children's Day to honor the potential within each child and to reaffirm their commitment to their well-being.

The event raised about N$126,000 for the Walvis Bay Sunshine Centre.
