The Week Against Child Abuse

‘See, Say, Stop!’, Is the slogan of Jeugdzorg en Gezinsvoogdij Caribisch Nederland (JGCN) during the week against child abuse that will take place from November 19th until November 25th, 2018. A well-known sound for many, but unfortunately this makes practice for a scary silence. A silence that needs to be broken, because no child deserves to be mistreated.

Almost everyone sees it or experiences it, but often nothing is said or done and a nasty and often unexplored reality will form, with all its consequences. That is why it is so important to make child abuse more debatable. What is the best way to recognize child abuse? There are 5 forms of child abuse: physical abuse, emotional & psychological abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse and neglect. Discuss it when you recognize 1 or more forms of child abuse and inform aid organizations so that they can help to protect a child.

JGCN prioritizes the safety of children in the Caribbean Netherlands and child abuse is a direct violation of this safety. It is in the general interest that there is more awareness about  child abuse.
