Child Abuse:Child abuse" can be defined as causing or permitting any harmful or offensive contact on a child's body; and, any communication or transaction of any kind which humiliates, shames, or frightens the child. However some organisations go further to claim that “any act or omission, which fails to nurture or in the upbringing of the children” amounts to child abuse.
Our parade today and the work of FACC is about protecting the children of Bayan Loco and the local area. But it is also about laying the foundations of a strong future for the community.
The rest of this blog will be pictures – pictures to show our parade, and pictures of the children from the community who joined the parade. Pictures of the adults of the community who saw our parade, and I hope, understood at least part of the message on our banner.
But there are also pictures of the community itself, and its environment. Pictures which show why Bayan Loco needs a better, brighter future. Hopefully one that its children, unabused and empowered, can help deliver.
