Halt the horror

Children in Papua New Guinea are in danger and need your protection now.

No child should fear for their life

Your donation today will help protect children in PNG from abuse and violence.

Right now, in our neighbouring country Papua New Guinea, children are victims of horrific violence and abuse. Children like Delma.* While this is not her real name or her picture above, her story is real.  

Her life changed forever at only 6-years-old, when a man from her community committed the unspeakable to her. 

Trigger Warning: what follows is about child sexual assault. You may find this distressing. 

The man sexually assaulted her. He damaged her little body. He hurt her. So much that she urgently needed surgery and ongoing access to psychological healing. 

We can’t stand and watch our neighbour’s children being hurt. With you, we need to halt the horror and heal the hurt for children in PNG.

Half of ALL children in PNG are hurt by family violence. 70% suffer physical abuse. The damage is dangerous.

Your donation will help protect children in danger and will equip community members so they can prevent violence and keep their children safe.

Every donation you make to this project will be combined with funding from the Australian Government to reach more people. We have committed to contribute $1 for every $5 we receive from the Australian Government. Your donation will allow us to extend our programs.

* The names on this page have been changed to protect the real identities of the child and her family.

Donations of $2  and over are tax deductible. Funds raised will be used to assist children and families in need. Any funds raised in excess of the amount required will be allocated to dedicated programming which supports children and families affected by emergencies around the world.
