Always Connected

APRIL 3, 2020. “This is a unique moment in the history of humanity as each of us in the world faces unprecedented challenges. Let us be comforted in the knowing that we are all powerful individuals who chose to create and be a part of the global network of ECA in order to make a difference on the planet. We are always connected and constantly seeking ways to make this world a safer place for children and vulnerable adults. As we take the time to remain safer at home in order that the global community may heal from this Covid-19 virus, let us be mindful that April is designated as Child Abuse Prevention Month and there are others who still need our care and attention even as we care for ourselves. We have turned our childhood pain into a force for justice. Let us continue to stand together to be a hope for others by exchanging ideas on self care and advocacy and use this time to build an even stronger network.” ECA Board of Directors.

“Este es un momento único en la historia de la humanidad ya que cada uno de nosotros en el mundo se enfrenta a desafíos sin precedentes. Confortémonos sabiendo que todos somos individuos poderosos que eligieron crear la red global de ECA para marcar la diferencia en el planeta. Estamos siempre conectados y buscando constantemente maneras de hacer de este mundo un lugar más seguro para los niños y los adultos vulnerables. Mientras nos tomamos el tiempo de permanecer más seguros en casa para que la comunidad global pueda curarse de este virus Covid-19, seamos conscientes de que este es el Mes de la Prevención del Abuso Infantil y que hay otros que todavía necesitan nuestro cuidado y atención incluso mientras nos cuidamos a nosotros mismos. Hemos convertido nuestro dolor infantil en una fuerza de justicia. Sigamos siendo una esperanza para los demás intercambiando ideas sobre el cuidado de uno mismo y la defensa y utilicemos este tiempo para construir una red aún más fuerte”.

Junta Directiva de la ECA.
