Every 16 minutes, a child somewhere in this country is subject to some form of physical, emotional, sexual abuse or neglect.
That’s 88 children abused every single day. This abuse is happening to children like Amy right here in Australia. Abuse can make even the most innocent things terrifying. And the impact can last a lifetime.
