Hannah Yeoh: We Need a Ministry of Children

Two weeks ago, after Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob was appointed as Prime Minister, the former Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development, Hannah Yeoh, called on the PM to establish a separate ministry to look after the needs of children in the country. Right now, children’s issues are largely addressed by the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development, so why is having a separate ministry necessary? How will it help us better protect children’s rights and welfare? And, more importantly, is it the right time? YB Hannah Yeoh is joined by child rights activist and founder of Yayasan Chow Kit, Datuk Dr Hartini Zainudin, to share more about why it’s time for a Ministry of Children.
