President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the need of the day is to make children aware of the honorable family bondage.

During a discussion with the new recruits of Provincial Child Protectors and Social Mental Officers at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday, President Rajapaksa said that his government after 2005, took steps to set up a separate ministry for children.

He also said although the UN Charter of Human Rights has prescribed about child protection, Sri Lanka take steps to protect her children according to the norms dictated by age-old-traditions.
