support children and youth victims of sexual abuse in Macedonia
In the world: around one million children are victims of sexual abuse yearly. The statistics show that the female children are five times more frequently victims of sexual abuse in comparison with males, i.e. each third girl and each seventh boy are victims of pedophiles. In 89,75 % of the cases the abuse lasts several years, and in 10,25 % cases for several months.
Being stroked by the everyday news and events about sexual abuse to children and youth, CIRa and the First Children Embassy in the World – Megashi initiated the Campaign for fundraising by citizens and enterprises for establishment of a Fund to support children and youth victims of sexual abuse in Macedonia on September 26, 2008.
So far the fund has collected around 5000 EUR in donations. Starting from March 4th 2009 we announce the start of the providing support to the victims of sexual abuse for:
- psycho-social assistance to the victims (individual therapy)
- legal aid,
- assistance and support to victims for integration in the community,
- implementation of information and educational campaigns for prevention of further sexual abuse of children and youth, etc.
Please spread this information to your friends in order to cover any victim that needs support from the Fund.
