Prayer Need Surgery 2015.12.07

Prayer Need: One teen male #ChildAbuse survivor we mentor is about to go into surgery to repair sexual damage done. It can be life threatening without the emergency surgery.

Update December 8, 2015

Need prayer for a young teen ‪#‎ChildAbuse‬ survivor I mentor every day. Just had surgery caused by the abuse suffered and things have taken a not good turn. Potassium levels extremely high, plus irregular heart rate. They are hooking up kidney dialysis to lower potassium levels. Could be a leakage from intestinal area so prepping for scans. Also could be causing bad bacterial infection which may be building as we speak.

PLEASE Support our survivor support mentoring and care work for this victim thru #ArkofHope for Children http://bit.ly/1LHaAA8

5 Tips to get a maltreated child ready for schooling

Guest post by Jason Phillips

Child maltreatment is conduct toward a kid that is beyond the norms of behavior and constitutes an extensive risk of causing emotion or physical harm. Types of maltreatment that are recognized include emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. The origin of maltreatment is varied and hardly understood. Neglect and abuse are associated with delayed growth and development, mental issues and physical injuries. The analysisis based on physical examination, lab tests and sometimes history. Management entails treatment of injuries, mental conditions, and mandatory preparing the child for schooling through foster care to keep them safe.

2017 A Look Back for Ark of Hope

With the arrival of Christmas 2017 Ark of Hope for Children wishes to express our deep gratitude to our many followers, volunteer supporters, advocates and of course the survivors that have trusted us. I cannot truly express how humbled I am by your level of care and patience with us during the past year. This year I…. WE hit severe compassion fatigue (burnout) after doing this for 20+ years and heavily online since 2008 when we began assisting survivors of child trafficking and child abuse online. Following the suicide of one teen and rejection of support by another, I spent a good portion of this year feeling as if I could not find words that could help others when I struggled at times to help myself. Yet you stood by us.

Crumbling finances took their toll as well.

It is with great joy that we think of all of the followers, survivors, contributors and volunteers that Ark of Hope for Children is blessed to know. You have so encouraged us this year and we are grateful for every one of you.

For many survivors holidays can be a difficult time indeed; From memories of personal atrocities they faced to missing what could have been and wasn’t for them. Yet with gentle, caring time spent volunteer advocates and peer survivors they are finding glimmers of hope. Ark of Hope for Children strives to bring as many glimmers as possible, and that has only been possible because of your support for us.

How to Support a Bullied Child

Ways to help support, deal with, and overcome bullying

Guest post by Carl McLean of MomBible

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 160,000 kids per day do not attend school for fear of being bullied. This is a terribly sad statistic. These children live in a state of fear and dread of the physical, verbal, and mental aggression they face each day.

HOW DOES BULLYING AFFECT A CHILD

Those who do attend school go around in a chronic state of anxiety and depression. The long-term effects of bullying and living in this state of mind of anxiety and depression can be catastrophic to a child. If they are left in this toxic environment, it will affect them; possibly for the rest of their lives.

Prolonged exposure to bullying can have detrimental effects on a child’s self-esteem and their ability to trust. They can have trouble forming good relationships and are at a higher risk for substance abuse.

We all need to take an active role in preventing bullying. Sometimes, recognizing a bully is easy but there are other times when it may be less obvious.

Operation Extrteme Care

Ark of Hope for Children has a super volunteer and mentee that once aged-out of foster care and has been helping others ever since. While focusing on how to help other foster and once abused youth with how to age out with success, he enlisted in the military. Now a ranking officer in a war zone he is still only thinking of others and continues to help Ark of Hope from afar as he can.

He has been so supportive of our efforts, that when he reached about most of his “group” not getting care packages from home that Ark of Hope jumped on it. We have launched Operation Extreme Care and we need your $5 to $10 care packages rushed to us, so we can rush them to 80+ enlisted troops in an active war zone that need encouragement and moral boosts from home. No matter what your stance, let’s support these men AND women!
