According to him, a lot of negative issues such as teenage pregnancy, early marriage, child labour among others are being reported amid the introduction of the state of public emergency.

Fadera thus challenged CCPC to sensitize parents and guidance to protect children.

The chairman of Kombo Central District Community Child Protection Committee, Ensa E. Sanneh said the community faces alarming threat, which requires concerted effort by all to increase safety and implement health officials’ and WHO measures by all means.

He thanked the federation for providing a vehicle, Public Addressing System and PPEs.
