Helpline 1325

Children, who don’t feel safe, must immediately seek help or use the Na­tional Child Helpline.

This was the advice from the Ministry of ­Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation. The Ministry is also encouraging children to either visit a social welfare office or po­lice station, speak to their teachers and visit a health centre or hospital. Under the Child Welfare Act, these professionals are duty bound to report cases of harm or suspected harm.

The ministry’s concern surfaced after two girls, were reported missing at the Labasa Police Station, failed to return to their home in Vunivau, Labasa on Monday.

They were found on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro con­firmed they were located at a friend’s place in Labasa.

“The two have been located, safe and in good health at a friend’s house,” Ms Naisoro said.
