I'm Standing Up Campign 2021
This month of February 2021, we are standing up to Child Abuse. According to the WHO there are over 1 billion children that are abused every year, and that was before the advent of Covid-19 - we know that statistics have increased greatly during this period. We would like your help to make people aware that there is so much we can do to stop this, things we can do to help parents and educate children.
Child maltreatment causes suffering to children and families and can have long-term consequences. Maltreatment causes stress that is associated with disruption in early brain development. Extreme stress can impair the development of the nervous and immune systems. Consequently, as adults, maltreated children are at increased risk for behavioural, physical and mental health problems.
So lets get involved and make a difference.
We will be doing differnt activities this month - so if you would like to be involved please join our mailing list (on the front page)
Please download our Badges (below) and use them on your Social Media - it is important for people to know that we are standing up against child abuse, bullying, cyberbullying, child marraige,
child labour and exploitation.
