A New Association for Helping Sexually Abused Children in Morocco

A Moro in America reports on a new association that will work with sexually abused children:

A small group of Moroccans online watched a youtube video about sex tourism in Morocco and how abused Moroccan children are not only the weakest link but also the biggest victims. Everyone upset and even enraged and decided not to sit idle and read about it in the news everyday. Deciding to move from a mentality of talk and whining into a culture of action and responsibility, they immediately started building a non-profit association to organize events, seminars, and lobby with the Moroccan movers and shakers for tougher laws on the aggressors and to break the tradition of shame and silence of the victims.
