Sexually and Physically Abused Children
Ntimi home of hope also received sexually and physically abused children. On admission, these children undergo physiotherapy as they come with broken limbs and even burns. Sometimes we are forced to call for a psychiatrist to offer counseling for these children. Our home counselor offers counseling sessions to boost the previous sessions handled by the psychiatrist. It requires a lot of sessions for these children and it takes time to adjust to the new life around them. Some of these children take long to heal from the trauma they underwent when being abused hence they require more time and special attention. At times the social worker steps in to offer the children with counseling sessions.
There are times when we rescue children who are still very young and after a few months of growth, we realize that they have medical complications that require medical attention and sometimes further referrals. Since this child is under our care, it is upon us to ensure that the child lives a normal life.
