PSA: The "PLONI/T" Child Protection Center

By Gldmeier @gldmeier

Here is an opportunity to name The Bet Shemesh Child Protection Center after your beloved family member or other honoree.
Magen's Child Protection Center has already made our city much safer for all our children.
When Magen started, in 2010, Beit Shemesh had the lowest child abuse reporting statistics for any city in Israel. 
This indicated that most child abuse cases were not being reported, that victims lacked protection and treatment, and that perpetrators were freely operating without consequence.
In just two years, Magen has received reports of over one hundred (100) alleged child abusers and over two hundred (200) victims. Magen coordinates closely with the community leadership, the social services and the police.
In 2011, after Magen's first year, child abuse reports to the authorities in Beit Shemesh increased by a remarkable 40%.
B"H, we are turning the corner on child abuse in our community. 
In order to continue this critical work, Magen needs your support.
Our office rental contract is up for renewal next month (March) - and unfortunately Magen does not have the funding for the full year.
In honour of the first party who is willing to fund the rent for this coming year ($16,000), Magen will name these offices after a person of the donor's choosing. 
In their zchut all of our children will be better protected from abuse.
