National Child Abuse Awareness Month

April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month and April 4 is Childhelp National Day of Hope. Every year millions of children around the world are victims of abuse and neglect, and millions more receive preventative assistance to help avoid continuing abuse. Childhelp is an organization dedicated to helping provide help to children who are in situations where they are suffering from neglect and abuse. The Day of Hope is a day to remember these hidden statistics and to do your part to help those in your community and throughout the world. Abuse comes in many forms, from physical violence, to sexual abuse, to sheer neglect where necessary medical care and food are withheld. Report abuse by calling 1-800-4-A-CHILD.
