NOVEMBER 19, 2020: Today is recognized as World Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse, under the theme: “Together for our children”. Public relations and communications manager at the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) Rochelle Dixon Gordon used the opportunity to remind Jamaicans that reports of abuse can be made anonymously. She pointed out that there has been a reduction in reports since COVID-19 began affecting Jamaica, which could be due to increased supervision at home or the fact that children are sharing spaces with their perpetrator and do not have the opportunity to make reports at school.
