In the midst of economic troubles, organizations in Georgia are thankful to be the recipients of grants from the Coweta Community Foundation, some of which will help in shaken baby syndrome prevention, according to the Times-Herald online. The mission of the foundation is to provide grants to a variety of causes that will better the quality of life for local residents. Among those charitable causes is shaken baby syndrome (also called abusive head trauma) prevention. Specifically, Prevent Child Abuse (PCA) Coweta was given $1,000 to purchase three dolls that simulate how abusive head trauma affects a child's brain. The simulator dolls will be placed in three separate Coweta County high schools in an effort to educate students and the local community on the serious dangers of baby shaking. Grant money to the organization has already aided in the purchase of educational DVDs aimed at shaken baby prevention, as well.
Not only is it helpful for organizations to receive grants like this in the midst of difficult economic times for financial reasons, but also for a bigger reason: since economic crisis leads to a significant rise in incidents of child abuse, it is more important than ever to aid in abusive head trauma prevention.
