Wando Int. Works with local Uganda Authorities to help Protect Children’s Safety
Child Abuse is a real danger especially present for children living in the slums.
November 11th, 2016 Wando International social workers were notified that a 4 year old girl named Taliru, living in the lower Navah slum of Njeru, had been physically abused. Neighbors of the girl said they saw her walking strangely and when they asked her about it they realized that she had extreme swelling in lower abdomen and genital area.
The person who assaulted this little girl? Taliru’s own stepmother.
Wando’s social workers immediately notified the authorities. Taliru’s stepmother, Ayo, and the father were both taken into police custody. Taliru was rushed to the Gadafi Military Police Clinic for medical examination and report filing and then later taken to the Christa Medical Center for treatment. The results of the examination were both disturbing and heartbreaking.
