Child Sexual Abuse In The Community

On Thursday,we were invited by Reverend Ngatho,to go and speak to the parents of he's private school about child abuse and mental abuse since it was so common in the area. When I had to talked on sexual abuse,many concerns were from the parents. Most of them said they feared to report rape cases because they may not want to spoil the family's name if maybe the father or close relative commits it ok spoil one's name for example if its the pastor who's involved. We had to tell them on child's protection rights and the importance of reporting such cases. Also,they raised the issue of the chief's facing so long to write them the so required latters in hospitals and sometimes shut them down and hence one ends up not getting the required attention. I gave them a contact of MSF,a medical organisation who gives medication without thinking or asking for the so called chief latters and evidence,so as to protect and treat the victim first and provides guidance and councilling latter. They were so happy a brut the organisation and each and everyone of them took the contact.
