Ministry Reports Child Molestation At NGO

The Reporter (Addis Ababa), 15 March 2000

Addis Ababa—The injury, assault and violation of rights to which the children at African Cradle are subjected are posing a danger that is not to be taken lightly, and hence require immediate action, said a report by inspectors from the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (MOLSA).

These dangerous practices could lead to more complex and disturbing problems. For the sake of the social welfare of the children, and in the name of humanity, we recommend that the children there be transferred to another orphanage.
