Worsening situation of Rape and Child abuse around the world


You are making very clear sense …. I’m speechless! The children are our future …. They are pure, trusting, innocent, naive. They are LIGHT! Heinous & despicable barely begin to cover it. Humanity is lost. No moral compass …. There will come a time to pay but not soon enough!!!

I have always been an active campaigner against child abuse, violence and rape and sexual harassment of children, especially young vulnerable girls. So, I was saddened and highly disturbed by the latest UN report that about 120 million girls around the world get raped or sexually abused before they reach the age of 20. This alarming figure represents nearly one in ten girls!
The UN report which gathered data from 190 countries also shows that sexual violence against boys is also becoming widespread although it is lesser compared to that of girls and is more under reported.

I won’t like to keep on with the statistics, you can see them in this BBC report about child sexual abuse. I’ve severally written about countries which are known for high levels of rape including the Democratic Republic of Congo referred to as the ‘rape capital of the world’; South Africa

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
