DID YOU KNOW?

SA Children are amongst the most traumatised in the worldSouth African children are among the most traumatised in the world.

In one study, 91% of school children who were interviewed had been exposed to traumatic events, including violent crime, domestic violence, rape and child abuse. 38% reported trauma symptoms severe enough to be classified as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. South Africa is the child rape capital of the world, with a child raped every 3 minutes.

Do you also believe that all children should be free to live, love, learn, play and grow up physically AND emotionally healthy? If you do, please support the CSC’s SAVE-A-CHILD PROJECT! To donate, go here: http://bit.ly/GWsCVQ

About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
