UNICEF titled Sharjah as 'Child Friendly City' in the world

The United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) has titled Sharjah as ‘Child Friendly City’ in the world.

Sharjah has become the first city to receive the UN’s prestigious title after successfully meeting the new international requirements and criteria launched by Unicef’s global CFC initiative and its new brand identity last month.

In a special session of Sharjah’s children and youth held at the Consultative Council of Sharjah, it was named as the ‘Child-friendly City’, in the presence of His Highness Dr. Shaikh Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, and Shaikha Budoor Bint Sultan Al Qasimi, chairperson of the Sharjah Baby Friendly Office.

In 2015, Sharjah received the world’s first ‘Baby-friendly City’ title by the UN and World Health Organization.
