Mr. Nassem Ur Rehman chief of UNICEF in Information and Communication articulated one of the millennium development goals as being to combat child abuse, violence exploitation and trafficking in Yemen.

He also stated that UNICEF will have a field program during Ramadan with a number of journalists, for meeting local officials and a number of smuggled children and their families. This is aiming at acquainting the journalists with the problem, so that they could be able to write freely and in a manner that they think it is appropriate to raise public awareness of combating the phenomenon.

He said that combating child trafficking is a social responsibility to which we are all obligated.
