Queen Ifrica, arguably one of the most dynamic female singers on the Jamaican musical landscape, has added her voice to the cry to protect the nation's children at the launch of the Scotia Foundation Child Month activities.

Motivated partly by her own need to make a difference, the artiste has teamed up with the Office of the Children's Advocate to assist with delivering the message surrounding issues of abuse.

The launch, which took place at the Scotia Centre, will see the Foundation partnering with a number of state agencies focused on child safety and protection as they carry out activities based on the theme, Healthy Children Build a Stronger Nation.

In an emotional rendition of Daddy Don't Touch Me There, Queen Ifrica captured the reality of many of our children who are exposed to abuse in the home, and honed in on the central theme enacted by other presenters and performers throughout the event.

Items of song, dance and poetry were also contributed by a number of schools including Denham Town Primary, St Michael's Primary and Truston Basic School.
