If no hand is raised, is it child abuse ?

Sometime back, the Random Alphabets with UNICEF Malaysia organize a campaign cum flash mob to talk about the silent side of child abuse. For many of us growing up, we had always believe that it is when a grown up lifts their hand and strikes a child, only then it is child abuse.

UNICEF Malaysia needed to educate everyone that abuse comes in many forms and physical abuse is just part of it. Thus Random Alphabets came up with a concept to get random participants to lie down covered with large pieces of cloths over them.

Why? When you cover something in cloth it looks new but you do not see the damage beneath it. Same thing with the non physical child abuse, damage is there but we don’t know.

Therefore, i ask you, If no hand is raised, is it child abuse ?

Always Keep Fighting And Never Lose Hope
