어린이 성폭력 퇴치를 위한 노력

2006.12.28
Outside this hospital in northern Madagascar a savage wind blows, inside lies the crumbled young victim of a savage act. Nearly four years ago Kenia says she was sodomized by her uncle. He denies it and court papers have mysteriously disappeared. Kenia’s parents feel helpless as they see their daughter’s life and her body destroyed. Soundbite (French), Odette Manoro, Social Worker, Ministry of Population: “She wants to go to school but it’s very hard for her, even for her to sit for a long time, she just can’t. She’s completely exhausted because she cannot eat like she should. It’s terrible. I’m really afraid for her.” Sadly 13 year-old Kenia is just one of untold numbers of children who are violated and abused by people they trust and often in homes or schools. Throughout Madagascar, UNICEF has helped set up child-protection teams of judges, doctors, teachers and pupils themselves to tackle this violence head-on. It has led to double the number of cases being reported to the police in some areas. Judges are sensitized to deal with scared silent children, coaxing them to talk, counselling them to heal. But justice heals and all too often with children justice is denied. It pains Kenia’s mother Soundbite (Malagasy), Joazandry Moravelo, Kenia’s mother: “I am very, very sad. We are struggling to do everything we can for the health of our child while the perpetrator of this rape has never been caught. It makes me feel sick deep in my heart.” Another emergency evacuation for Kenia, this time to the capital, Antananarivo. Doctors here not hopeful they can repair her. Kenia’s case is very public now and her parents hope it will set an example for others who remain nameless and unknown.
