Surabaya (Rifyu.com) – As many as 63 puskesmas in the city of Surabaya, East Java, provide health services and psychologists who are ready to assist children who experience problems within the family, the environment or as a result of their own behavior.

Maulisa said, in terms of facilities, the municipal government also provides these facilities to children with disabilities to those in orphanages.

“Then, we also provide protection from cases of pornography and sexual abuse of children. All PD (regional apparatus) are still struggling to deal with child problems,” he said.

According to him, a big city like Surabaya cannot avoid the phenomenon of sexual abuse in children.

“However, that does not mean that the municipal government is silent. In overcoming this phenomenon, the PD staff continues to provide education and assistance so that the problem can be resolved,” he said.

Maulisa added, in overcoming problems of abuse or violence against children as much as possible it was completed within 1×24 hours.

“It is a phenomenon that occurs in big cities, but how do we manage and then solve the problem by integrating with stakeholders as quickly as possible. In fact, ministries and the central government also pay attention to it,” he said.

He hopes that, with this assistance, the children in Surabaya in the future will become the next generation with noble character who will continue as leaders of the Indonesian nation and especially in the city of Surabaya.

“I hope that the children of Surabaya can be an inspiration for children in other cities in Indonesia. Apart from being physically healthy children, they are also healthy in their environment and way of thinking,” he added.
