“Deprived of Their Childhood” – Pope Francis

Friday June 12, 2020 makes World Day Against Child Labour. “In the current health emergency situation, in several countries many children and young people are forced into jobs that are inappropriate for their age in order to help their families in conditions of extreme poverty.” Pope Francis explained.

“We are all responsible for the scourge of child labour.” His Holiness appealed to the international community to protect boys and girls who are forced into child labour losing their childhoods and more.
