Rosmah Wants Women Organisations To Enhance Role | 22/02/2010
Untitled document KUCHING, Feb 22 2010 (Bernama) -- The role of women organisations in helping government to address social problems should be enhanced and expanded to cover aspects on religion, moral and welfare, the Prime Minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said Monday.

This, she said, would enable them to play a more effective role, especially in dealing with cases of youngsters and women who became pregnant out of wed-lock.

Integrated programmes, including campaigns, should be carried out to instil awareness among youngsters on illicit sex, with the help of the relevant government agencies, she said in her speech at a function attended by non-governmental organisations in Sarawak Monday.

The function was held in conjunction with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's visit to Sarawak.

On the recent cases of abandoned babies, Rosmah said it happened possibly because the unwed mothers were afraid and had no place to turn to.

Hence, she said, women organisations should advice those in such a dilemma, like sending their babies to welfare homes.

Women organisations played an important role in the society because of their close link with the grassroots, she added.
