The mission of Compassion for the Family's Banderas Bay Women's Shelter is to provide an immediate, temporary and safe living environment and to provide the basic needs for women and their children who are victims of domestic and sexual violence. Learn more about their efforts and how you can help.

Jalisco Congressional Political Coordination Council President Clemente Castañeda Hoeflich said earlier this week that the state Congress will spend the rest of the year tackling the problem of child abuse.

“By 2014, reforms to the legal framework regarding the rights of children will be a reality,” Castañeda Hoeflich said.

Castañeda Hoeflich’s comments were made at the “Child Abuse Prevention and Care” Forum in Guadalajara, where he thanked Jalisco Deputy Mariana Arámbula Melénde, who organized the forum, “for her commitment to children, as well as for having found an echo among the various political parties represented in Congress.”

Arámbula Meléndez, a member of the National Action Party (PAN), said that child abuse “harms minors in the deepest way, not just physically but also emotionally, morally and psychologically. It causes permanent damage that mutilates their personality, wounds them and humiliates them.”

Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) Federal Deputy Verónica Beatriz Juárez Piña, president of the Children’s Rights Committee, repeated the importance of tackling the problem of child abuse “due to the fact that it impacts the entire population, especially children and adolescents.”
