HFC's (Help For Children/Hedge Funds Care) mission to fight child abuse has never been more important than now, against the backdrop of a global pandemic, economic fallout and social distancing measures. These measures are leaving children at home with their parents, who studies show, are the main perpetrators of child abuse in nearly 80% of cases. Now more than ever, we need your help to combat what experts warn has become a silent global epidemic.
HFC has been fighting child abuse since 1998 and works with an academic expert to prevent and treat child abuse by funding effective programs in four impact areas. These include decreasing the risk of abuse, strengthening vulnerable families and working with survivors to reduce trauma and build individual strengths.
