This beautiful FDC was sent to me by Terence from Johor Bahru, thank you very much!

The stamp set and FDC were issued on October 9, 2009. They commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).

This legally binding treaty calls on all citizens of the world, from its leaders to each one of us; women, men, girls and boys, to live up to our duties to ensure every child survives and thrives, free of hunger, want, neglect and abuse.

The CRC demands from every one of us, as part of a caring society, to place children at the heart of human development. Not only because this offers a strong return on our investment; nor because the vulnerability of childhood calls upon our compassion; but rather because that is every child’s right.
