Pinwheels planted to draw attention to child abuse and neglect

Mongolian Mothers Demand Tighter Child Abuse Laws After Rape

Thankfully, there is much that can be done to help prevent child abuse, as well as to minimize the long-term impact on victims.

The center is set up so the child who has been victimized need only speak once about the experience.

If your business or organization is interested in hosting a pinwheel garden during April, just call Sara McBroom at 318-398-0945.

The pinwheels are meant to symbolize a carefree childhood that everyone deserves.

It may sound cliche', but if you see something, say something.
