The inaugural Conference on the Protection of Childhoods (CPC) was held on March 17, 2019, at the Alhamra Arts Center, Mall Road, Lahore to support survivors of the menace of child sexual abuse. The conference emphasized on opening new avenues for their rehabilitation and raise legal awareness. Advocate Mawra Hocane attended and spoke at the conference. She advocated the cause of child abuse and the stigmas/injustice associated with it.

Celebrities in Pakistan not only influence the style and trend among their fans and followers but also considerably impact their way of thinking and their deeds. Often, we get an illusion that stars are way beyond the problems faced by common man and pay no heed in social issues. However, Mawra has always tried to break the stereotypes; Hocane is a star by every right, not just a master in her craft; she is also a wonderful human being.

In a series of tweets Mawra wrote:

Extremely heartbreaking to hear all the victims speak at the HRPC at the #StopChildSexAbuse event. By the time I was called to speak my throat was chocked, I had goosebumps & I couldn't breathe. I will do everything in my capacity to support this cause & so should you all!

Extending my love & strength to all these brave victims of rape who came forward today. I hope we can together give our children a safer place to grow & enjoy their childhood as they deserve. #StopChildSexAbuse

I'll attend the event tomorrow for this little flower & many others who were crushed before they could bloom. I stand in solidarity with #StopChildSexAbuse because I am ashamed & apologetic for all such incidents. We won't stop till all predators are punished & child abuse ends!

Barrister Hassaan Niazi lauded the Sammi star and said:

Thank you Advocate and superstar @MawraHocane - you made a heart touching speech. Your presence made a big difference to the conference for Protection of Childhood. Hoping to see you soon fighting some great cases as well. Inshallah #StopChildSexAbuse

Mawra replied in response:

Thank you!!! I'm so grateful & honored to be a minuscule part of your extraordinary efforts towards such an important cause! #StopChildSexAbuse I hope we can collaborate on many other matters that require our attention & time! I'm so proud of all the rape & sodomy survivors.

Renowned people expert in their respective fields related to the legal, medical and psychological aspect of this issue & Government officials working in the relevant areas also attended to provide solutions to result in the legislation and law reforms which will eliminate the problem.
