KUALA LUMPUR: Sexual abuse is an issue Malaysia needs to tackle head on to ensure all children are protected, says Johor Permaisuri Raja Zarith Sofiah Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah.

"The issue is not a popular one, but we must tackle it and face it head on," said Raja Zarith at the Tindak Demi Anak Kita (TinDAK) charity fundraising event held here on Thursday (June 21) where she presented a cheque of RM500,000 on behalf of Johor's Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar to aid the continuing fight against child sexual abuse in Malaysia.
