“STOP the Deaths from Child Abuse! NOW!”

Cherie stood up and spoke out against child abuse. She was attacked by some for doing that, but she kept speaking out and keeps highlighting the issue and building support for abused children.

Memorial planned for abused kids

A Waikato woman who was labelled a nark for talking to police about the death of a Ngaruawahia baby is asking New Zealanders to remember child abuse victims in a special memorial.

Nation of Advocates for the Rights of Kids (Nark) founder Cherie Kurarangi Sweeney said she would like New Zealanders to place soft toys at war memorials on September 3.

This is her latest initiative.

STOP the Deaths from Child Abuse! NOW!

03 September · 12:00 – 15:00

This memorial for our children who have died at the hands of someone who was supposed to be caring for them is simple,it does not cost BUT it will have huge impact.
I am asking you to spare 1 Toy/soft cuddly on September the 3rd and encourage everyone you can and know to do the same.

1 Toy to be placed at your towns local memorial statue or wall, in memory of our fallen heroes, the many children lost to child abuse.

Since our great soldiers passed there have been none other like them ever except for these Babies and I want a nation to accept awareness because for these children thats the very least we can be. AWARE.

Thank you and I really hope you can help.
Cherie Kurarangi Sweeney

Great to see someone start doing something positive about a major problem, and great to see the growing support for her efforts.

Returned and Services Association president Don McIver said veterans support the initiative. “Our veterans fought and gave their lives for the preservation of our democratic way of life and for the preservation of the individual safety and freedom which we all cherish I am sure that the veterans themselves would have seen this cause as a most worthy one, providing the dignity of the memorials is preserved.”

Speaking up is part of confronting the problem.
