Egypt, UNICEF join hands to celebrate World Children's Day
The celebration was attended by Actress and Singer Donia Samir Ghanem, UNICEF Egypt's Goodwill Ambassador.
Published in Daily News Egypt on 29 - 11 - 2021

Egypt's Ministry of Social Solidarity, in partnership with the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM) and UNICEF Egypt, and with the generous contribution from the United States' Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, organized an edutainment event to mark the World Children's Day at KidZania centre in Cairo.
The celebration was attended by Actress and Singer Donia Samir Ghanem, UNICEF Egypt's Goodwill Ambassador.
The World Children's Day commemorates the anniversary of the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in November 1989.
Nearly 300 children, including Egyptians, refugees, and migrants, participated in the celebration.
The participating children aged between 5-14 years were engaged in activities that promote inclusion and equity.
According to the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS), there are 39.6 million children (under 18 years old) in Egypt, while the number of adolescents and youth (aged 10 to 24 years) is estimated at 27.6 million.
The World Children's Day aims to advocate, promote, and celebrate children's rights, translating into dialogues and actions which would encourage us all to build a better world for our children.
Jeremy Hopkins, UNICEF Representative in Egypt, said: "I am pleased to celebrate with children their global and national day. It's an opportunity for all of us to renew our commitment to doing our share and take up our collective responsibility in providing a dignified, safe, and prosperous life to every girl and boy."
"I would like to extend my thanks to UNICEF Egypt's partners for their support and to Donia Samir Ghanem for amplifying children's rights. By her participation in today's event, she is certainly helping us to draw a smile on children's faces and to promote equity and the participation of the hard to reach and the most vulnerable," added Hopkins.
Ghanem said, "It is our collective responsibility to provide opportunities for all children to live a safe and happy childhood. They have the right to learn, play and acquire the life skills necessary to enable them to live a better future."
