Report abuse

Mere Naleba
Saturday, November 10, 2012

THE Social Welfare Department is deploying officers to hold meetings in various sectors in the Central Division.

This is a bid to encourage parents, guardians and adults to report any suspected or confirmed cases of child abuse.

Department staff met teachers of 12 schools in Nabua at the Nabua Police Station on Thursday.

"There are a lot of child abuse cases in the community that you're not aware of," said social welfare officer Laite Calevuilagi.

"There is also a lot of confusion on how you can report child abuse cases."

The program is a build-up to the Blue Ribbon Campaign on November 19, which is also known as the International Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (PCAN Day).
