Our 11th Birthday

Date: Monday, July 22, 2019

 

Child abuse is a critical issue that has long been neglected in Lebanon. A study conducted in 2008, showed that 1 out of 6 children in Lebanon is a victim of a form of sexual violence.
This refers to only 1 out of 4 types of abuse a child can be exposed to: physical abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse and neglect.
In light of these alarming results, himaya was founded in 2008 with the notification number 748/2009. The organization has continued to grow, responding to child protection needs on a national level.
 

The dedicated & multidisciplinary team of professionals covers all Lebanese territory with offices in Mount Lebanon, South Lebanon, North Lebanon and the Bekaa; ensuring accessible services to children across Lebanon.
In order to achieve its mission, himaya works with children as well as their families and the environment as a whole.
himaya strives for a radical change on a national level in order to improve the lives of children in Lebanon.
This year, we are celebrating our 11th birthday.
We are celebrating:
11 years of fighting violence against children.
11 years of offering personalized life plans, psychosocial guidance and legal support for children, victims of violence and their families. 
11 years of raising awareness and providing prevention activities and sessions to children of all ages. 
11 years of sharing our knowledge and expertise with our fellow experts working with children.
Today, we are celebrating our hard work and impact but we know that there is still a long way to go. 
Thousands of children still live in fear, silenced by the abuse they are being subject to every day. 
Thousands of innocent childhoods and dreams are being ripped away from children in this very moment.

 

Not all celebrations are happy.                          

 
Donate now, together we can give them back their childhood.   
                     
Let children be children again.
