KSA and St. Catherine lead child abuse incidences

by September 23rd, 2021

Kingston and St. Andrew and St. Catherine are among the parishes with the highest incidences of child abuse.

That’s according to Minister of Education and Youth, Fayval Williams.

Speaking at the launch of the 211 helpline for abused children yesterday, Mrs. Williams noted that child abuse cases have been constant over the past ten years, with some parishes consistently having higher cases than others.

Minister Williams noted that the launch of the 211 helpline is timely given the consistent number of abuse cases in the island.
