The mission of The Fiona Project is two-fold:
Sponsored programs will teach families and care providers how to protect and support our children by reducing opportunities for abusers to have unrestricted access to our youth, recognizing the symptoms of grooming and abuse, and guiding them in what to do if they suspect a child is being abused (or groomed for abuse).
Fiona is intended to bring the travesty and proliferation of child sexual abuse to light through the popularity of music-video. We want watchers to “wake up and smell the thorns.”
Child sexual abuse happens… a lot! And it’s absolutely devastating.
Even for those who don’t remember until years into their adulthood, the side-effects are deeply-ingrained, long-lasting and easily recognizable throughout their lives.
However, the message of Fiona, is that healing is possible. Life can be safe, peaceful and whole– even after abuse.
Finding a good support group, reading other survivor’s stories and books on healing (such as The Courage to Heal, a must read for survivors who want to recover from their abuse–not just live with it), seeing a therapist or using other alternative healing methods can provide the backbone needed for creating a healthier, happier life.
For a list of resources for survivors, including books, support programs, recommended practitioners and program partners, please visit the Resources page of Help for Survivors.
We hope that you love Fiona and that you are moved deeply by the music-video… deeply enough to be willing to donate generously in exchange for a free download of the song.
