Innocence in Danger in the UK commits itself to helping children, both boys and girls, who have been victims of pedophilia.
In 2018, we will organise our first UK Summer Camp for victims of sexual abuse that occured in the UK. A group of children with a guardian or parent will begin the process of overcoming the trauma they have suffered. They take the first steps towards rebuilding their future.
The UK Summer Camp is modeled on the one organised by Innocence in Danger Switzerland. During their stay, the campers participate in outdoor, cultural and artistic activities. The summer camp there has 12 years experience. They have cared for 192 kids.
We are hoping to have our first Fundraising Event in 2017.
We hope to raise the funds to organise and invite a group of children and their parent or guardian from the UK to participate in the UK Summer Camp 2018.
We are also working on a Conference in London for early 2018.
We’d love you to join. Please get in touch!
