Pfarreiblatt Sursee: "Are we forgetting the children?"

Children receive significantly less protection from the COVID-19 pandemic than adults. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the UN General Assembly on November 20, 1989, states that every child in the world has the right to grow up healthy and safely, to develop his or her potential, and to be listened to and taken seriously.

For the current situation, this means taking children seriously as subjects of rights, respecting them, informing them according to their age and involving them in decisions.
