COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, has the world on lock down and children at home. For a lot of children, this is an alright time because they’ll be in a safe home with their family. For others, it can mean a worse time if they are living in an abusive home. School, daycare, and more places outside of the home can be a safe haven for abused children, and putting them into a home indefinitely with no way out, even temporarily, can end up doing a lot of harm.
I’m making this video to bring awareness to this issue in hopes that people will join me in helping make sure these kids will get any help that they still can while this virus is rampant.
