Domestic and family violence hurts kids too

3 web
Children are often the forgotten victims in domestic violence, but it doesn’t take much to imagine just how fearful and unsafe it is for children to grow up in an environment that is unstable and violent.
The Campbelltown Domestic Violence Committee Wash Away Violence Project was aimed at raising awareness of the impact of family abuse on children. Even if not in the room, children can be affected and the impact can be lifelong without intervention!
The Campbelltown Domestic Violence Committee invited local artists to support the project and three world acclaimed Wedderburn Gorge Artists painted two T shirts each.   These T Shirts are now available for Auction to raise funds for the Committee to continue to raise awareness and reduce violence against children.
Three of the T shirts have been framed by Three P’s Picture Framing who donated the frames and their valuable professional time.  (Three P’s Picture Framing can be contacted on: 0415 596 414).
