JGCN in Neighborhoods against Child Abuse

Kralendijk- Last Saturday, December 7, a team of five youth professionals from Youth Care & Family Supervision Caribbean Netherlands (JGCN) visited neighborhoods with a bus to raise the issue of child abuse.

The professionals talked to people at different supermarkets and in Playa, North Salina, Amboina and Rincon. It was striking that everyone they spoke to, recognized the beating of children as child abuse, but that neglect and psychological abuse were mentioned and recognized less frequently.

Next year, during the Week against Child Abuse, the JGCN wants to organize more activities together with other youth organizations to ask attention for the subject.
