Director of Public Relations and Media at CCC Abdullah Hamed al Mulla said the centre marked the occasion in order to make children aware of their rights and have access to full health care, entertainment, learning and development activities.

“Qatar is a signatory to the children’s rights agreement. That is why our centre is organising awareness and educational programmes to highlight the child’s rights that should be provided to him by his community through centres and institutions concerned with the children affairs,” Mulla said.

The event featured folk dances by representatives of different schools. The children wrote their wishes on the occasion. The celebrations also included an exhibition of products, clothes and booklets providing information about countries around the world.
