RFA against Child Abuse

27 Aug

Local NGO Rights for All launched a child abuse awareness campaign on Friday. They handed out leaflets at the artificial beach and around the Children’s Park near Kalaafaanu School.

The leaflet described different forms of child abuse including: physical abuse, phsychological abuse, sexual abuse. It als described very briefly the consequences of child abuse: becoming suicidal, addiction to drugs, psychiatric disorders, among others.

It also cited the following as measures that can be taken against child abuse: (i) refrain from causing any form of abuse to children, (ii) reporting any form of child abuse to the relevant authorities, (iii) educating the public on child abuse.

The leaflet also encouraged to report any form of child abuse either to the Police (3322112 ext. 3566 / 3166) or the Gender Ministy (3328393 / 7793673). It aslo requested that any cases reported to be informed to RFA on 7682210. The RFA leaflet also said that legal advice on protection from child abuse is available from the Legal Advice Clinic of Hama Jamiyya.

We wish RFA well in their endeavours.
