Child marriage is not a game
Watch a video animation that highlights the risks of early marriage
As concern rises in Germany about the hundreds of married minors among refugees, an animated video created to combat child violence in Lebanon reminds us that early marriage is an issue that crosses borders and requires a global effort to stop.
“Marriage is not a game. Let’s unite to say no to child marriage,” the video encourages viewers, citing numerous threats, including health risks to the young mom and baby during pregnancy and childbirth.
Watch the video presented by the European Union, UNICEF and Lebanese non-governmental agency ABAAD.
Christian Children’s Fund of Canada works with our local partners around the world to educate girls, families and communities about the need to end child marriage. We also advocate globally, as a member of ChildFund Alliance, to keep children safe from violence and exploitation, including the prevention of child marriage. Visit freefromviolence.org.
