International Children’s Rights Organisation the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) did not neglect to respond to a recent crisis at the Government Industrial School (GIS).

Instead, UNICEF representative Dr Aloys Kamuragiye said that for many years they have been assisting the Government of Barbados with policies designed to protect children, and he said they would continue to do so.

“From where I sit, the Government of Barbados has taken the matter seriously. They committed to look at the issue and investigate. And UNICEF as a friend of Barbados followed closely what was happening and we were ready to provide any kind of support they needed to address sustainably the challenges that had been there for years.

“We received a request from the Government to provide technical support, and they have appropriate, adequate procedures in place to address the issues in a sustainable manner. (TG)
