BUCHAREST, 1 June 2014 - The Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Protection and the Elderly (MLFSPE) and the National Authority for Child Rights Protection and Adoption (NACRPA), with the support of UNICEF Romania, celebrated the International Children’s Day together, at the Village Museum. The event was attended by: Rovana Plumb – Minister of Labour, Gabriela Coman – NACRPA President, Sandie Blanchet - UNICEF Representative in Romania. Special guest of the event was Smiley, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Romania.

In the opening of the event, Minister Rovana Plumb mentioned some of the measures taken for children by her institution and stated that: “Children are the future, a country’s most precious asset, and our duty is to create the right environment for them to grow up healthy and well-balanced. Therefore, this Government looks closely into every adverse phenomenon affecting young generations in Romania and addresses each one of them with the utmost seriousness and interest, developing clear policies under a consistent vision. The reinstatement of the National Authority for Child Rights Protection and Adoption was a symbolic gesture showing the amount of consideration we give to the issues facing this extremely vulnerable group. UNICEF Romania is a reliable partner for us in this journey.

Gabriela Coman, NACRPA President, showcased the benefits for the most vulnerable children and their families resulting from the endorsement and implementation of the new Strategy for the Protection of Children’s Rights, as well as the objectives of the Authority for the upcoming period. “By 2020, we want Romania to have healthy and educated children, with the fewest possible without a family, affected by violence at home, at school and in their community, or in the care of the State. These are some of the targets set for Strategy measures and actions. They are aimed at both children and parents, and professionals from central and local government institutions getting in contact with them. By 2020, at the end of the Strategy implementing period, we want to be able to say that the rights of the child are the law”, declared NACPRA President, Gabriela Coman.

In her turn, Sandie Blanchet, UNICEF Representative in Romania, added: “We are thrilled that 1 June 2014 comes with good news for children. A few months ago, the Government of Romania reinstated the National Authority for Child Rights Protection and Adoption, which clearly demonstrates that children are once again a priority on Romania’s political and public agenda. The draft Child Rights Strategy 2014-2020 and the national strategies for social inclusion, health and education will give the opportunity to mobilise EUR billions for children and their families, especially for those vulnerable. UNICEF will continue to work together with the Government, other institutions and children on their behalf.”

At the end of the event, Smiley, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Romania, wished children ‘Happy Children’s Day’, took pictures with them and signed autographs.

We would like to thank Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum for hosting the event.
