On 31 May 2021, Acting Chief Commissioner Khunan Jargalsaikhan, Commissioner Munkhzul Khurelbaatar of the National Human Rights Commission of Mongolia, Head of the Capital City Department of Authority for Family, Child and Youth Development U.Gan-Ulzii, Head of the Legal Department of the Secretariat of the City Governor's Office B.Mungunshagai visited the one-stop service center for the protection of witness and victims of domestic violence of the Authority for Family, Child and Youth Development in Chingeltei district and handed toys, books and manuals to the children of the center.

On the occasion of International Children's Day, the National Human Rights Commission of Mongolia and Secretariat of the City Governor's Office jointly organized an event to support children's development rights, reached out to children at the one-stop service center for the protection of witnesses and victims of domestic violence in Chingeltei, Khan-Uul, Sukhbaatar and Bayangol districts of the capital city, and contributed to the number of children's books and toys.

In 2021, the number of children served by one-stop services has doubled to 1,300. The number of serviced children has increased 2.1 times compared to the same period last year. Since the beginning of this year, 339 people have been served at the Chingeltei one-stop service center for the protection of witnesses and victims of domestic violence, of which 11 individuals are adults and the rest are all children. Currently, the center serves 7 children, most are disabled and malnourished.

It can be concluded that the increase in the number of children served at one-stop services is due to the surge of domestic violence and alcoholism. The scope of child protection has been expanded as well. Therefore, the Commissioners stressed the need to pay close attention to child protection services and to improve the legal environment related to guardians.
