UNICEF sympathizes with the families, classmates and teachers of children victims of the tragedy in Rio de Janeiro

Brasilia, April 8, 2011 - Schools should be safe spaces for learning where children, their families and the community learn to live together in a respectful and supportive way, having all their rights secured.

 

For this reason, UNICEF received with revulsion and horror the news of the brutal act of violence occurred in the municipal school Realengo West Zone of Rio de Janeiro.


At this time of great sadness for all, UNICEF sympathizes with the families, classmates and teachers of children victims of the tragedy and the school community.


UNICEF is available to the Municipality of Rio de Janeiro and City Council of the Rights of the Child and Adolescent to participate in the actions necessary to confront and overcome the marks of this terrible tragedy.
