Staff members at the Ministry of Health and Social Development are pictured wearing blue to show support for the observation of Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month. This month marks the 20th Anniversary of the observation of the month in the Virgin Islands. The meaning behind wearing blue comes from a grandmother from Virginia who lost her grandson to child abuse and neglect.
Minister for Health and Social Development Honourable Marlon Penn has said that the Government of the Virgin Islands remains committed to working towards creating a Territory where children are free from discrimination, violence, and injustice.
