SEXUAL ABUSE WITHIN FAMILIES

The devastating effect of sexual abuse.

It’s a topic that no-one really wants to discuss, but sexual abuse within families is another problem that has a devastating effect on the child victims and other members of the family. Many Filipinos have large families, but their houses are small and they have to sleep in close proximity to each other due to a lack of space. This gives older relatives the opportunity to easily abuse younger children; often using threats to make sure that their secret activity is not revealed.

Many parents work abroad and trust the care of their children to other relatives here in the Philippines, again exposing the children to possible abuse. Sometimes one parent has a new partner and that can also lead to sexual abuse of the ‘step-children’.

Some of the children in Angel House are victims of sexual abuse within their family and it has meant them having to leave their home, friends and school to live here under our protective custody; we provide loving care that enables them to freely express their emotions and work through their complex issues. Slowly they become more confident and sociable, making new friends and doing better in school.

Your financial support through Global Giving enables our professional staff to provide a nurturing environment and counselling for these vulnerable children, helping them to move forward to a brighter future with confidence. Thank you and blessings of peace to your family this festive season.
