The Love the Nations Foundation managed by the Congregation of the Mission priests yesterday served food to about 40 mostly Muslim street children as part of its ongoing mission.

The group, established in 1998, aims to promote children’s rights in East Java province.

“This activity is an expression of [our] concerns over the exploitation of children’s rights because of their families’ weak financial situation,” said Fr Markus Rudy Hermawan, coordinator of the foundation’s program.

Through the program, he added, “we want to encourage the children to study hard so as to fight against limiting their rights.”
