Taipei, April 24 (CNA) Drop boxes to receive donations are being installed at eight post offices in Pingtung City in southern Taiwan to sponsor a new global campaign launched by World Vision to end violence against children, a post office executive said Monday.

The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children was launched by World Vision to catalyze a global movement of people committed to keeping children safe from harm, the executive said.

To endorse the campaign, the eight post offices decided to set up the drop boxes to collect donations between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. from Monday to Saturday this week, the executive added.

In addition, a fundraiser booth will be set up from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Minsheng Rd. Post Office in Pingtung on Saturday.

The first 300 people who make a donation of more than NT$100 (US$3.31) or sponsor at least one child through World Vision at the fundraiser will be offered a post office memorial key chain, while the first 10 who donate more than NT$1,000 will be given a model postal truck.

The cause is extremely timely. According to United Nations statistics, at least one billion children are exposed to violence every year, and a child dies every five minutes as a result of violence.

Also, more than 1 in 10 girls have been victims of sexual violence and more than 240 million children live in countries affected by conflict. (Courtesy of CNA)
