International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression is observed globally on 4th June every year. This day affirms the United Nations’ commitment to guard the rights of children. This day is to acknowledge the pain suffered by children who are the victims of physical, mental and emotional abuse. The main aim of celebrating today is to spread the notice about the pain and sufferings faced by the victims as children.
On 19th August 1982, the United Nations, at its emergency special session decided to commemorate this day of each year as the International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression.
