I know child abuse, because I’ve experienced it firsthand. Abuse affects all members of the family, which in turn has an impact on the family unit and the future of our children, and in turn, the future for all of us in the community. It is a cycle that must be broken very early.

We all become victims of the abuse in some way if we do not educate and actively work towards fighting it. Child abuse isn’t pleasant to talk about, but bringing it out in the open through education and awareness is the only way to fight it. Healing happens when it is brought into the light.
