On World Children’s Day also knows as Child Right’s Day, Ayushmann Khurrana reveals that the health crisis that happened during the pandemic has turned into an acute humanitarian and child rights crisis now.
The actor pledges to constantly work towards protecting child rights. He says, “We have seen that the pandemic that started as a health crisis has turned into an acute humanitarian and child rights crisis. Children are affected in many ways, directly and indirectly, such as losing out on their physical and mental well-being, learning, social interactions, nutrition.
Many lost their parents as well. We have children not only living an emotional tragedy, they are also at high risk of neglect, abuse and exploitation.” He adds, “Let’s pledge this World Children’s Day to give back to all children their childhood and their future, impacted due to the pandemic. Covid-19 has changed the way many of us will live and work. Let’s reimagine and take action so that all children are protected from all manner of abuse; that they can safely go back to school and learn and are mentally and physically healthy.”
