Fact about the Youth Rights views of Chris Hemsworth

Child Abuse Activist

19 Jul 2017

In the The Australian Childhood Foundation website, where he's recognized as a Patron

Child abuse is Australia’s biggest social problem, I was lucky enough to grow up in a loving, supportive household, but my parents have been social workers for more than 20 years, and from them I know the lasting damage that abuse and neglect can cause. The trauma of abuse stays with children long after the threat has left them, unless they are helped to heal. I am also very appreciative of the work the Foundation does to prevent abuse before it has a chance to occur. Knowledge, information and connectedness are such powerful weapons in the fight against abuse, and the more we make ourselves aware of the issue of child abuse, the better we can support vulnerable children and their families within our community and keep them safe from harm.
