The theme of this year’s awareness and impact campaign is “Growing a Better Tomorrow for All Children, Together.”
After seeing the high rate of child abuse in local counties, one Augusta University assistant professor and a team at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia are determined to help prevent children from being abused throughout the Augusta area.
In Georgia, 48 children are victimized by child abuse each day, according to the Children’s Advocacy Center. That averages to 1 child every 30 minutes, every single day in the state.
The Children's Hospital of Georgia's Child Protection Team is bringing awareness to this issue through various events throughout the month.
