Children in PNG suffer more from family Sexual Violence

“More cases seen at the Medical Social Work Department (MSWD) at Port Moresby General Hospital (PMGH) involve children.”

Common cases include children being abused by their stepfathers; children neglected when their father or mother remarries, and many more.

Communication barrier and fear are some of the obstacles preventing children from seeking help from places like Family Support Centre (FSC).

The campaign aims to make it an inclusive responsibility for all citizens to stand together to fight Gender Based Violence.
