The 60th anniversary of UNICEF

On 26 October 2006, Mrs Maria Kaczyńska met at the Presidential Palace with Ms Rima Salah, Deputy Executive Director of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), who had come to Poland to take part in UNICEF’s 60th anniversary celebrations and to meet with Polish government officials in an effort to step up Polish involvement in UNICEF activities.

In her talks with Ms Rima Salah, the First Lady said that concrete results could only be achieved by working together in the spirit of solidarity to help children. She also emphasized the seriousness of the problem of violence against children, and the need for decisive countermeasures; of violence not only of adults against children, but also of the very drastic phenomenon of peer violence and aggression that had been spreading in recent years. It is a problem that requires special attention.

Rima Salah plans to visit other Central European capitals shortly, and the two ladies considered the possibility of interesting the First Ladies from Central European countries in joint action to combat peer violence.

The Polish First Lady bestowed her honorary patronage upon a charity gala ‘One World, Two Faces’ to mark the 60th anniversary of the United Nations Children’s Fund, to be held on 27 October at Warsaw’s Sofitel Victoria Hotel.
