Child abuse in South Africa

As a nation we should be Uniting to Protect Children!

From 2008 to 2015 POACHERS KILLED 5,940 AFRICAN RHINOS!

By the end of 2015, the number of African rhinos killed by poachers had increased for the sixth year in a row with at least 1,338 rhinos killed by poachers across Africa in 2015.

Even with Millions raised annually to protect Rhino, it currently remains at a crisis point!

From 2008 to 2015 OVER 49,680,000 CHILDREN SEXUALLY ABUSED IN SOUTH AFRICA!

We seriously need to unite and become proactive in placing PREVENTION Programs in the hands of our children (and parents), to create the awareness to protect them against the scourges of ongoing serious abuse which has become a more than a national crisis!

ONE IN THREE YOUNG SOUTH AFRICANS SEXUALLY ABUSED – NEW STUDY
1 June, 2016
Read study: https://www.uct.ac.za/usr/press/2016/2016-06-01_ChildAbuse.pdf

Commissioned by the UBS Optimus Foundation and conducted by researchers from the UNIVERSITY OF CAPE TOWN AND THE CENTRE FOR JUSTICE AND CRIME PREVENTION.

Governments and ‘society as a whole’ cannot sit back and allow this horrific ongoing abuse on children. Various national ‘services’ have, and are still being founded and funded yearly, costing the country Billions and focusing mainly on the CURE, while the scourges continue to worsen and continue prevailing from generation to generation…

For this “WAR” against child abuse we must realise the urgent need for PREVENTION measures to be put in place, linked with campaigns around the proven facts that; “Prevention is Better than cure!” and “Informed children are safer and happier children!” The participation of ‘society and media as a whole’ will also be essential throughout this “WAR”- Believing too; WITH GOD We Can and Will Win!

Our first highly appraised PREVENTION booklet (with a great track record) can be read on our website; www.stopchildabuse.co.za
