They do not have access to even primary healthcare. They are subjected to cruel and inhumane treatments every day. They are children - innocent, young and beautiful – who are deprived of their rights. Etymologically, the term “child” comes from the Latin infants which means the one who does not speak “. For the Roman, this term designates the child from its birth, up to the age of 7 years”.
