Beckham on ending Child Abuse –
“I made a commitment to do everything I can to make the world a safer place for children and to speak out on issues that are having a devastating impact on children’s lives. One of those issues is violence.”
UNICEF Executive Director, Anthony Lake –
“Violence and abuse take a terrible toll on children’s lives and futures – harming their bodies and undermining their emotional wellbeing, even interfering with their healthy development of their brains.”
After a research by UNICEF –
190,000 children revealed that 28% of children think their parent commits violence and 9% think it is their teachers. It also revealed that after every 5 minutes, a child dies as a result of violence.
The issue needs some serious attention and awareness must be created through short films like Bachpan and this tough video by spreading it on social media worldwide. Not just spreading the message but doing what one can do to stop the child abuse. Start small but dream big!
A brave step by David Beckham towards creating awareness through this crucial video!
