Kudos to the former-principal of a PCF childcare centre for reporting the abuse of a four-year old girl to the police. The abuser is now behind bars and ordered to receive four strokes of the cane. (You can read part of the article here, or obtain a copy of The New Paper dated Saturday 12 October).
We must intervene when we see or suspect abuse, to protect the young. In the above case, the child’s mother did not report the matter to the police nor did she seek medical attention for the child. Thankfully, the principal and staff of the school were observant and acted on their suspicions.
