On November 25, Okaz newspaper reported that The Social Protection Unit in the Asir region joined forces with the Ministry of Labor and Social Development, in efforts to save eight children from their abusive father.

 

The Unit has a duty towards protecting people from domestic violence — which is why they immediately began legal proceedings against the offending father; in the meantime, the children were delivered to the hospital for checkups.
