CAIRO - 8 April 2019: The National Council for Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM) announced the participation of several members of the National Team to Protect and Combat Violence against Children in the Arab Parliament's opening ceremony in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
The Arab Parliament is one of the organizations affiliated to the Arab League; it launched its first session on April 7 with the participation of a large number of children from all over the Arab world.

Such initiative comes within the frame work of efforts aiming at boosting relationships among Arab children, offering a suitable environment to support the political upbringing of the coming generations.
