Innocence in Danger About

Innocence in Danger UK Mission

Innocence in Danger in the UK commits itself to helping children, both boys and girls, who have been victims of pedophilia.

In 2019, we will organise our first UK Summer Camp for victims of sexual abuse that occured in the UK. A group of children with a guardian or parent will begin the process of overcoming the trauma they have suffered. They take the first steps towards rebuilding their future.

Innocence in Danger Wins Award for Protecting Children from Sexual Violence

(Zaragoza, 26 June) – Recognising the impact of Susana Lopez Roque of Innocence in Danger Colombia in protecting children from sexual violence, on 22 June the 5th International Mindfulness Congress presented her with an award.

This recognition was announced at the annual event at the World Trade Centre in Zargoza, Spain. The 5000 Euro award will greatly enhance efforts to protect children in Colombia from sexual violence. Ms Lopez Roque is an advocate of mindfulness as part of Innocence in Danger recovery efforts for children who have suffered sexual abuse.

The Colombia branch of Innocence in Danger was established with the help of Ms Lopez Roque. “This international recognition for her selfless efforts will no doubt place a spotlight on the urgency of our collective responsibility for the next generation,” said Homayra Sellier, the founder of Innocence in Danger International, “protecting children is integral to our survival as a human race.”

Ms Lopez Claros brings Innocence in Danger efforts in Colombia to street children who have no other form of protection against predators. Innocence in Danger International congratulates Ms Lopez Claros for her great achievement.
