PROGRAMMES FACT SHEETS

 

In today's world, families are confronted with different forms of violence that can harm children's physical, intellectual and moral development. Islam and Christianity stress the importance of protecting children from all forms of violence. The Muslim and Christian faiths place particular importance on the role of the family in raising children and protecting them from harm and violence. In this context, Al-Azhar University and the Coptic Church of Egypt have joined together with UNICEF to develop three publications to reflect the position of the two great religions on multiple aspects of violence against children.
