Colours of My World was launched in conjunction with the 5th anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities ( CRPD ) on 8th May 2013 to encourage greater public understanding, acceptance and inclusion for children with disabilities.
“Pos Malaysia lauds the various initiatives coordinated by UNICEF to promote the rights of children worldwide and we are proud to demonstrate our support. This is our second collaboration to produce stamps on children’s rights and we are honoured to be a partner of UNICEF and Kakikreatif for the ‘Colours of My World’ art contest,” said Encik Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.
“Too often, children with disabilities are made to feel that there is no place for them, that they don’t count and have nothing to contribute. Their invisibility robs society of a valuable resource. Which is why Pos Malaysia is truly honoured to be a part of an initiative that will celebrate disabled children and provide them with a meaningful media to showcase their talents whereby their artwork will be featured in our stamps for all Malaysians and the world to appreciate,” Encik Mohd Shukrie added.
Winning entries from each of the three disability categories will be used to create Pos Malaysia’s Caring Society commemorative stamps and first day cover. Pos Malaysia will also award each of the three winners with a cash prize of RM 10,000. This is the second initiative between Malaysia’s postal service and UNICEF. In 2009, Pos Malaysia joined forces with UNICEF to create the Caring Society stamp set to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. (unicef.org)
