The Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) has provided a total of $10.6 million in additional funding to the anti child abuse campaign being led by Office of the Children’s Registry.

The Registry has been running its Break the Silence Campaign since the middle of last year.

JSIF says the additional funding is a demonstration of its resolve to aid in the fight against child abuse in Jamaica.

The agency says the money will help keep the campaign going for an additional six months.

The primary aim of the campaign is towards increasing the awareness of teachers, parents and communities on mandatory reporting of child abuse.
