‘Paremos el abuso’ was founded by Olly and Helen Goldenberg from the United Kingdom.
In 2013 when they visited Colombia, they heard horrible stories about how children in the country were sexually abused. They also knew that in the last ten years the church in Colombia in general, suddenly knew of cases of sexual abuse in a distant and indirect way but very little could be done, or was done, about it.
"I do not know what we're going to do!" Olly said. "But the only thing we are not going to do in the next ten years, is to stay without doing anything!
When searching for God in this regard, they realized that many organizations were working at the local level to bring about change, but not much was being done at the national level to address this problem.This is how the "Basta Ya" campaign began, inviting the churches to join with them to pray for the children of this Colombian nation; this is how one Sunday a year he would dedicate himself to pray to end the scourge.
In 2014, when the first day of prayer was celebrated, some 500 churches participated. Now more and more churches are coming together and have begun to pray against child sexual abuse. Do you want to join us?
