The Life of Every Child Matters

Endale Edith
Posted February 13, 2020 from Cameroon

We’ve all seen the horrid stories of abuse on the news and videos circulating on social media of children being starved and locked in their basements, or beaten to almost the point of death or sexually molested by a relative or a neighbor. The stories are horrific!!! These stories fuel my passion to ensure that special protection be enhanced to enable children to develop physically, mentally, morally, spiritually and socially in a healthy and normal manner and in conditions of freedom, security, safety and dignity.

This story was submitted in response to Peace and Security.

Dear Edith,
Yes, so many horrible stories and it is strong sisters like you who continue to read and speak out, who are changing the lives of children, and pressing changes in Governments by repeating back to officials the reality. These stories fuel my passion too, and I am so glad to know that we are all in this together now.

Hello, sister Edith,

Indeed, there are so many stories of maltreatment and abuse in children. It's heartbreaking. I'm glad that you are passionate about providing solutions to children who need proper care. You are a mother through and through! Keep it up, dear. Please keep us posted!

Hi Edith it is important to talk about the life of a child because it raise awareness . Thanks for sharing. I witness a case and was angry about the fact that a father would beat the wife on a daily basis, that mother would take it in turn and beat the child. The was an abused child. I was mad about all those things, very bitterly because children have their rights and the life in every child matters in our society.
