The Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation is calling on traders and vendors to refrain from selling hazardous and harmful products to children.
This call has been made following the death of 3 school children who committed suicide in Vatuwaqa on Monday this week.
Minister Rosy Akbar has reiterated on the importance of traders to exercise responsibility by not allowing the sales of hazardous products to children.
Meanwhile, the Ministry is urging children to seek help if they’re facing any problems.
Akbar says her Ministry, together with a non-government organization – Empower Pacific is providing counselling and mentoring services to children who need advice.
She says parental support is also important in a child’s life and every parent need to spend quality time with their children.
