It is time for a change. It’s time for the world to wake up and see the damage Child sexual abuse has done to millions, maybe billions of people.
It is an epidemic that can be stopped. There needs to be a change of heart within the governments of the world.
How many children must suffer this. Why must this be kept a secret from our families.
Here are some facts about the numbers.
“Estimates now state that at least 1 in 4 males & 1 in 3 females will have survived some form of sexual abuse before reaching the age of 18!
In the UK, that accounts for almost 21% of the population!
That means in excess of 10,400,000 people in the UK are survivors of sexual abuse.
Assuming the average person lives until at least 70 years old, that means 148,571 NEW ‘victims’ of childhood sexual abuse each year. These figures do not include those adults who have been raped.
To put it into more manageable terms… each time you see a car pass you in the street, just think “that’s 3 people who have been abused”….you will not be that far wrong.”
It now time to educate parents, politicians, clergy. the general public. Only through bringing tis in to the mainstreem will change happen.
