Port of Spain,
Almost every day citizens in
this country, like everywhere in
the world, are bombarded by
reports of child abuse.
The perpetrators are often those
known to the child and even people
who hold influential offices and
every effort must be made to pro-
So said Minister of State Ayanna
Webster-Roy at the launch yes-
terday of UNICEF s 2016 report,
titled A Fair Chance For Every
Child, at the Hilton Trinidad and
Conference Centre, Port-of-Spain.
Describing children as society s
most vulnerable she said an
emphasis must also be placed on
She drew the example of a child
who had equal access to education
but due to financial constraints
within the home was unable to
take full advantage of that access.
Webster-Roy said for a sustain-
able society to be properly built
investment in children must take
place especially as education went
beyond a place of learning.
Regarding foster care she said
the Children s Authority was
expanding the number of foster
care providers throughout the
UNICEF s representative for the
Eastern Caribbean area, Khin-Sandi
Lwin, who also spoke, said the
decision to launch the report in
T&T was based on the fact that
T&T had taken a leadership role
in the Caribbean.
She added the fact that children s
issues were elevated to the Office
of the Prime Minister "really
showed where the heart is in chil-
She said the promise of equity
could be fulfilled if decision-makers
chose to "walk the talk."
She added: "Millions of children s
lives around the world are blighted
on no reason other than the place,
gender or circumstances into which
they are born.
"Failure to reach them now will
keep fuelling into generational
cycles of disadvantage that will
imperial their future and the future
of their societies and this increas-
ingly interconnected world."
Lwin said, however, there had
been tremendous progress in T&T
and in the Eastern Caribbean region
as more children were living longer,
healthier lives than ever before.
It was predicted that by 2030
167 million children would be living
in extreme poverty, 69 million chil-
dren under age five would die
between now and 2030 with 3.6
million children predicted to die in
one year alone from mostly pre-
ventable causes and there would
be three-quarters of a billion child
"But with the efforts being ini-
tiated by the ministry we are
confident that none of that num-
ber would be from T&T," Lwin
Former prime minister Patrick
Manning spent a restful night at
the San Fernando General Hospital
where he remains warded under-
going treatment, his wife Hazel
Manning has said.
Manning, who suffered a stroke
three years ago, was warded at hos-
pital on Monday night after falling
weak from a low blood count.
Concerns began pouring in on
Tuesday when Prime Minister Keith
Rowley at the official opening of the
Ministry of Education Tower, Port-
of-Spain, called on the nation to
pray for Manning.
His wife, in a post on his Face-
book page on Tuesday, said her hus-
band was admitted to hospital for
investigation concerning "an aber-
ration in his blood count."
She said he was in good spirits
and they continued to pray for him.
In an updated post yesterday, the
former education minister said: "Mr
Manning had a restful night at hos-
pital. He is still comfortable and
affable. Let us continue to pray for
the complete restoration of his
Medical director Dr Anand Chat-
toorgoon confirmed Manning was
still there and was doing well.
An attorney who visited Manning
on a private ward on Tuesday night
said he was receiving blood and
Earlier in the day St Vincent and
the Grenadines Prime Minister, Dr
Ralph Gonsalves, visited Manning
and reported he was in "good spir-
its."San Fernando Mayor Kazim
Hosein, who is observing the Holy
Month of Ramadan, said he had not
visited Manning because he was not
accepting visitors but he was keeping
him in his prayers.
Members of the public have taken
to Facebook to pledge their support
to Manning and his family and
promising to keep them in their
Manning, who served three times
as prime minister and as the longest
serving MP, suffered a stroke in Jan-
In February 2013, he suffered a
seizure and collapsed at his office.
He has been doing physiotherapy
since then and has regained his abil-
ity to walk and speak. In August
2004 a pacemaker was inserted in
Manning s heart in Cuba based on
the advice of medical practitioners
following the routine medical analy-
sis done on his heart in Cuba.
Kudos for T&T's stand
on abuse of children
