KUALA LUMPUR, July 28 2010 (Bernama) -- Society needs to be made aware of the importance of protecting and empowering children to enable them to fulfil their future potential as productive human beings, said the prime minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

She said children were the most sensitive and vulnerable segment of society and this made them an easy target of crimes and victims of violence.

"Crimes against children are the most appalling problems globally. We are constantly being inundated with news about how children are being abused in different ways, be it mentally or physically..

"Hence, we need to forge forward and create a society that is sensitive towards the prevention of crimes against our children."

Rosmah said this in her speech at the MoU-signing ceremony between the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation and Axxa Affin Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad for the "My Child Safety Programme" campaign, here, Wednesday.

Rosmah said society should develop skills and identify the resources they required to understand children's needs so that they were able to effectively shield their children from being harmed.

"Another possible measure in creating a crime prevention-sensitive society is by encouraging the public to get involved and expose the wrongdoings," she said.

As such, she wants the media to continue playing a critical role in highlighting the issues in order to generate public awareness and educate society on violence and crime against children and their protection.

"The public should continue to be exposed to the issue so that they will be well informed of the prevalence and seriousness of the problem nationwide," she said.
