On June 19, the Global March Against Child Labour team and the Child Labour Prevention Network-JARAK from Indonesia suffered a huge loss.
The former Executive Director of JARAK, Mr. Achmad Marzuki succumbed to COVID-19 on June 19. JARAK has been a long standing member of the Global March network.
Mr. Marzuki was very passionate and committed to ending child labour. He led many national and local efforts to address exploitation of children. He believed in creating safe spaces for children towards their better future. His passing away is a great loss to the national and international community.
On behalf of the Global March network, we would like to express our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and colleagues at JARAK.
We will always remember Mr. Marzuki for all his extraordinary efforts in ending child labour.
