National Child Protection Week 2014

Red Cross believes all children deserve to be safe, irrespective of ethnicity, culture, income, or education. That's why we're supporting National Child Protection Week, 7-13 September, 2014, with the theme Protecting Children is Everyone's Business.

Child abuse and exploitation is a serious social problem, including not only physical and sexual abuse, but also emotional abuse and neglect. Everyone has a role to play in preventing child abuse and exploitation. Through our work with children, families, communities and other organisations Red Cross helps prevent abuse and exploitation from occurring.
