What is CHILD ABUSE?

When a parent, caregiver or a stranger whether through action or failure to act, causes injury, exploitation, emotional or physical harm to the child, it is known as child abuse and it can scar the emotional and psychological state of the abused.

Empathetic counseling becomes exceedingly important to restore the TRUST in life and people, of the abused child (who may be adult now) to lead a normal and healthy life.
