Sharjah charity launch fund to support young girls

A global charity based in Sharjah has launched a fund to support the rights of young girls in the region.

The Big Heart Foundation says the initiative will aim to ensure that girls have access to education, healthcare, security and social support.

It will also work to prevent underage marriage, child trafficking and child labour.

Money for The Girl Child Fund will be raised through corporate and community involvement like fund-raising campaigns and events.
