Nairobi – “In Africa, there is increase in gender based-violence, sexual violence, early pregnancies, forced labor, child trafficking, early marriages and increased cases of Female Genital Mutilation, and especially now that we are facing this pandemic people in our society in Africa should be more vigilant and protect children from violence, especially the children who are voiceless”, is the appeal launched by Ms. Ashley Kitisya, Secretary General of Nature Nurture Club of Catholic University of Eastern Africa , urging to denounce the abuses and sufferings of minors in Africa: “Because of Covid, many children are not going to school, they are experiencing some culture-based abuses influenced by the elders who still hold on to their traditional practices”, reads the note of the Kenyan Bishops sent to Agenzia Fides.
