Who is going to protect our children?

Nothing is scarier than knowing your children whom you dearly love, are being abused either physically or mentally. In some parts of the world, child abuse has yet to receive exposure. People know about it, people talk about it, people even feel scared about this issue. But that’s not enough to the protect kids who are going through it. Nothing is enough if there are still kids out there who cry themselves to sleep every night. Dreaming of a live that could be…

Knowing all these cases, something has to be done. We need to address this issue. We should not only talk about it but we should be proactive in solving this issue. There’s always something that we can do to poke this issue out from its bubble.

Recently, Malaysia’s local journalists from RAGE have taken a step further. They hunt down pedophiles in Malaysia and the result was overwhelming. People started to confess about their own experience on this issue. And today, the RAGE team is working on a pledge to push the lawmaker in making laws against sexual grooming. This is what we need to protect our innocent children and give them a promising future.

Other than pedophiles cases, kids are also victims of other abuse than child marriage. Despite having their family with them. Shockingly, not all kids that went through this are facing financial problems. Two months ago, Seventeen magazine wrote an article about children being unprotected from early marriage. Stories of three girls who got married as early as 13 years old. Right after their puberty hits. For those girls, their lives are nothing but a living doll. Except, a doll is treated better compared to what these girls deserve. They have nothing to hang on to. Everything went upside down for a period of time. And all they have is their inner strength, just enough to bare the excruciating mental and physical pain – every single day. Given the right help, they are now free and chasing their dreams to change other children’s lives.
