#RunForChildren with World Vision Malaysia between 15 – 31 May 2022

World Vision Malaysia is back to running for a brighter future for children with its #RunForChildren virtual event.

The fundamental focus of the event is to end violence against children by raising awareness that children have rights and should be protected against abuse, neglect and violence.
