Child Assist logo_text_colour_w785

Child Assist is a multi-faceted organization that reaches out to children who have been through traumatic experiences. Children are the victims of different traumatic events on a daily basis. This results in the struggle of growing up as a child with much cares, emotional strain and sometimes physical pain. In 99% of the cases, an emotional unstable child turns out to be an emotional unstable adult, unless the trauma is detected and treated early.
