Help protect innocent babies like Daisy* from abuse

strip Baby Daisy is one of many voiceless victims

Baby Daisy grew up surrounded by neglect, pain, and suffering, much like her mother, Leila*. In her own childhood, Leila endured domestic and family violence, leaving lasting scars.
Unfortunately, this cycle of abuse continued, and baby Daisy ended up suffering too.

Sadly, Daisy’s story is more common than you think. Over 1,200 reports of child abuse or neglect are reported every day in Australia^. Will you donate to help break this cycle?  

When we were first called in to meet Daisy at the hospital, she was strangely silent and impassive. And she never cried – as if she’d given up on having her most basic needs met.
After assessing the situation, the authorities determined that it simply wasn’t safe for Daisy to be at home. That’s when Barnardos and generous supporters like you step in to provide the urgent support children like Daisy deserve.

Your donation can help innocent young victims of abuse grow up in safety and have the best chance for a brighter future. Give today.
