Refica Ince, National Director of SOS Children’s Village, said the following on the occasion of World Children’s Day:
My wish on World Children’s Day, June 1, after the “World for the Welfare of Children” conference, is to promote work to ensure the well-being of all children and to eliminate situations that could prevent them from being protected and accessed. Right, to this day fulfill all the promises made for the welfare of the children. Today, the value of the child is not known enough and children are neglected and abused by both their parents and the state. I hope that, as the SOS Children’s Village Association, we will one day succeed in building a ‘loving home for every child’ and a loving society, and we will live in a world that works for the welfare of children. Happy Children’s Day to all children, not just one day. “
