2013 EVENT AT MARKS PARK IN JOHANNESBURG, GAUTENG

 


 

A unique opportunity for businesses to get BRANDING at our special events!

SUFFER THE CHILDREN is an organization which was established to warn children against the dangers of drugs and also to warn parents against the devastating consequences  divorce has on children. To raise funds for this project Suffer The Children presents special events to create awareness to the plight of children in South Africa. The rate at which orphan children are increasing in South Africa is dangerously high with tremendous negative impact on future societies. There are currently 2 million orphaned children in SA. The next event is THE LIGHTING OF THE CANDLES!

Shocking Statistics About
Children and Divorce

The statistics pointing to the hard facts that children which come from broken homes suffer from both emotional and physical harm are many.

·         earned lower grades and their peers rated them as less pleasant to be around.

 

·         are three times more likely to need psychological help within a given year

 

·         Compared to children from homes disrupted by death, children from divorced homes have more psychological problems - The DEATH of a parent is LESS devastating to a child than a DIVORCE. 

 

·         Children of divorce are at a greater risk to experience injury, asthma, headaches and speech defects

 

·         fifty percent more likely to develop health problems

 

·         Most victims of child molestation come from single-parent households or are the children of drug- ring members

 

·         A Child in a female-headed home is 10 times more likely to be beaten or murdered

 

·         children tended to be lonely, unhappy, anxious and insecure

 

·         Seventy percent of long-term prison inmates grew up in broken homes.

 

·         four times more likely to report problems with peers and friends than children whose parents have kept their marriages intact.

 

·         tend to be more aggressive toward others

 

·         twice as likely to attempt suicide

 

·       twice more likely to drop out of high school

 

Urgent measures are needed to make amends for this harmful trend. We need to introduce workshops for fathers and workshops for children without fathers.  According to a report by the SA Institute for Race Relations we need more social workers, more effective sex education, tackling unemployment, older men to support young men in the absence of fathers and greater importance need to be given to the transmission of values to children and young people by individuals, in schools and through government policies.

Despite all these challenges most young people remain driven and hopeful of achieving their goals, says the report. 97% Believe in themselves and that they will achieve a good future. This shows that these young people are not aware of the odds that are stacked against them living healthy and successful lives.
