World Children’s Day to be observed Monday

Besides celebrating the international day for children, the country will also observe Child Rights week 2022 from October 4-October 11.


President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have issued separate messages on the occasion.


In his message, President Hamid said, “I welcome the initiative to observe World Children’s Day and Child Rights Week in Bangladesh. Today’s Children will lead the future world which is why the physical, mental and cultural developments of them through health, nutrition, education, security and entertainment are essential.”
