Myanmar Women Affairs Committee’s team for protection of child abandonment showed an educative programme on youth at the exhibition room, the Youth All-Round Development Festival held from December 1 to December 3 opened in the Yangon University Campus.
Dr Pyone Mo Ei, member of the team for protection of child abandonment said, “Some mothers abandoned their unwanted newly born infants after delivery. Every child wants to be brought up in the lap of their mother. Today’s child, being future’s leader-to-be, we would not like them to start their life with bitter experiences. Had we managed to protect unwanted conception, child abandonment would never occur, we firmly believe so. Such events usually happen to youths, so it is assumed that unwanted conception and child abandonment will never take place, provided that careful awareness is done among youths.”
At the youth all-round development festival, educative programmes were launched. Spreads of pamphlets and awarding prizes to winners in the quiz were made.
Dr Pyone Mo Ei said that such a way would make youths well convinced of family planning.
It has been learnt that Philanthropic Team led by Film Star Khaing Hnin Wai also took part in the campaign for eradicating child rape. Khaing Hnin Wai said, “We helped to eradicate child rape and reduce child abandonment. We arranged short play and concert. We aim at educating youths as to why child rapes are caused.”
There are frequent news and photos concerning child abandonment and child rapes seen on social website pages commonly used across the country. Girls across the world including Myanmar are coming to loose value and their virginity. Practices of living together without marriage are spreading into the environment of youth. Website pages and periodicals on sex and pornography are available within the reach of youths. With the increasing use of social web pages, trust abuses are abundant.
Living together and other reasons caused unnecessary cases such as unwanted conception, child rapes and child abandonments. By means of rightful education programmes we can reduce wrong sexual attitudes of youths. —Win Sandy Maw
