action rather than words...

I was kind of going through the daily news on my local newspaper and came across a crime against a teenager who was mass raped and also video taped during the incidents in South Africa....
The news is so tragic that I had τ̅☺ bring it up inorder to enquire if there's a world pulse representative acting as a voice against child pornography and rape.
This teenager realy needs our help and since there's no avenue τ̅☺ reach her, I realy think her voice should be heard.

The link is pasted below.
