EVERY child, every little person on this planet, holds an irreplaceable spark of hope and potential. Their dreams are the foundation upon which our shared future is built. As we stand on the threshold of a new year, the urgency to fiercely protect and nurture these precious souls becomes ever more pressing.
No child, regardless of their circumstances, should endure the cruel brunt of injustice, deprivation, or violence. Every child, without exception, deserves the fundamental right to an identity, a nationality, to education, good health, to safety and love at home, with family and loved ones. These are universal truths that we, as a global community, must uphold with unwavering determination and compassion.
