"I was honoured to be amongst the women and men in your midst that have the courage to speak up and make a difference. Out of their own pain and suffering they have grown to try and become protectors of the millions of children and adults who have been and still are abused. They are the voice that tries to intercept the evil act of child abuse by providing education and identifying the criminals. It was horrifying to learn of the statistics and the silence maintained at high levels. I do hope that with your work the numbers of the victims will reduce dramatically". - Dalia Sinclair, President NCJWA, NSW division
