Ministry-NGO to produce more sexual awareness YouTube videos


The Women, Family and Community Development Ministry will continue to collaborate with NGOs to produce online videos on sexual awareness for children.  

Deputy Minister Hannah Yeoh said the videos could educate the youth and help them if they were victims of sexual abuse.

"We would collaborate to develop content for children from six to teenagers," she told reporters after attending the World Vision Malaysia 70th anniversary celebration in Petaling Jaya today.

"The most important thing in producing such videos is the delivery of information and aid to children who are victims or needed help." 

On June 24 last year, Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail launched five sexual awareness YouTube videos for children as part of the government's efforts to reduce sexual crimes against children. 

The one-minute video for each series was a collaboration between the government and NGO Malaysians Against Pornography.

Yeoh said the five videos had achieved four million views as of last month.

In her speech, Yeoh expressed her support for World Vision's mission to ensure that children are cared for, protected, educated and given every opportunity to build a better future.

“I believe if everyone comes together and supports each other, the dream of helping every child to live life to the fullest could be made a reality,” she said.

Also present were World Vision Malaysia chief executive officer Daniel Boey and its advocates Deborah Henry, Owen Yap, Phoebe Yap and Freda Liu. — Bernama
