Are You Concerned About A Child? Report it ~ Global Contacts

 This week a woman was arrested for abusing her daughter, a 10 year old girl who was starved and locked in a closet for yearsShe was only saved after an anonymous telephone call to a child abuse hotline. This highlights the importance of reporting concerns whenever you have them. Full story here:

It’s not easy to speak out when you are concerned about a child; there is always the fear that you are wrong, interfering or mis-reading a situation.

But it really can mean the difference between death and survival for some children, and if you are wrong, the investigations will show that and there will be no harm done. Even if 9 times out of 10 you are wrong, it is worth it if 1 time in 10 you save a child from suffering.

Don’t wait until you’re certain.
