On the first of June, International Children’s Day is celebrated every year. On this occasion, politicians send wishes to the youngest. Among those who wished their children happiness were the President of the Republic of Poland, the Prime Minister and the Ombudsman.
During the annual “Safe Holidays with the Presidential Couple” event held at the Presidential Palace, the President of the Republic of Poland, accompanied by the First Lady, greeted the youngest.
“I wish you a beautiful and wonderful children’s day and a peaceful holiday full of rest” – President Andrzej Duda.
“First of all, I wish that you can achieve your dreams and that you can always rely on us – adults, because we adults should take care of you, take care of you and create the best conditions for your development. ” – emphasized Agata Kornhauser -Booby.
She also turned to the children of Ukraine. “I want to say that no child should go through what you are going through now. It is the irresponsible adults who caused this cruel war of which you are the victims” – she noted. She also expressed the hope that the war would end soon and the children would be able to return safely to their home country.
In his Facebook post, Prime Minister Matusz Morawiecki noted that in Borodianka he met war-affected children and families who had lost their homes and to whom Poland had provided humanitarian aid.
“I would love for this to be the last day of their children for them, and for them to be able to spend the next one in their own safe homes – in a completely different reality and in a land where there is peace. Let’s do everything to do- ASAP!” – he wrote.
“I wish you a lot of joy and fulfill your dreams. May you always have a smile on your face and may every day be a unique adventure” – wrote on Twitter Minister of Education and Science Przemysław Czarnek. “Let the time spent with your peers in kindergarten and school allow you to discover the secrets of the world around us” – he added.
The Minister, addressing the children, stressed that it was up to them to decide who they would be when they grew up. “Remember that we adults – parents, teachers and educators – will always be close to support you and allow you to develop your talents” – he stressed.
In his wishes, the Ombudsman underlined that it is better to celebrate Children’s Day by “ensuring decent living and growth conditions for the youngest”. It is worth for this day, as he assessed, for a reflection on respect for the rights of small citizens.
“As a state, as a school and as parents, are we doing enough to prevent a child from being starved, discriminated against, deprived of support in difficult times? Are there adequate conditions for develop and learn? Does he feel safe? Can he count on living with a disability, or when he catches illnesses, including those of a psychiatric nature?” – asked the commissioner.
“The consistent fight for the respect of the rights of the youngest is a priority for me, as Ombudsman for Citizens’ Rights. This also applies to children of families migrating to Poland. And I must say with great concern that it is an area still underprotected, requiring many legal and financial changes I will therefore make efforts to make the resolution of these problems one of the most important and urgent tasks for our entire social and state system “- noted Prof. Marcin Wiacek.
The children’s ombudsman, Mikołaj Pawlak, posted a video on Twitter in which he addressed the youngsters directly. “You are only a child once in your life. Only once can you be so wonderfully carefree, so wonderfully joyful,” he began, adding that now they can travel without limits, be who they want and pursue their dreams.
He called them to look around them at the world which is interesting and interesting and to know it. “I wish you a lot of joy, only happy times and a really fun vacation full of adventures” – he concluded.
The wishes were also made by representatives of the Sejm and the Senate.
“I wish all the children, young and old, lots of joy and smiles, the love of their loved ones and the realization of all their dreams. And to all the Ukrainian children who have found refuge in Poland, I wish that they may return home full of peace and happiness as soon as possible,” Senate Marshal Tomasz Grodzki wrote on Twitter.
Marshal of the Sejm Elżbieta Witek wished all the youngest that a smile always appears on their face and that joy is the most common feeling that accompanies them. She added that adults want a happy childhood for their children and today, while on vacation, have fun.
