[CSFC]: Seeking to Address the Problems of Child Abuse II.

May 19, 2010

FAR’s Children’s Support Foundation Center (CSFC) has made an incredible difference by helping abused and neglected children receive the support and services they need for the past 10 years.

The center’s excellent staff continually help children like Argishti, who are desperate for their support. Argishti was referred to the center because his mother had started abusing drugs with a former boyfriend. She continued her habit even after the relationship ended, began to neglect Argishti, and is now hospitalized due to her addiction. Her child is now in the hands of CSFC counselors who are helping her to regain a normal, stable life. It is yet another case that forces CSFC to try and figure out how to combat such destructive situations.

“Of course, parents still have the primary responsibility to safeguard their children from violence and neglect. To tackle this issue, however, a holistic approach is necessary. Community-based systems are essential and need to be expanded,” says CSFC Director Mira Antonyan. “Violence against children is never justifiable. Nor is it inevitable. If its underlying causes are identified and addressed, violence against children is entirely preventable.”
