Jackson’s Ridge – Royal Family Kids’ (JR-RFK) are welcoming, one-week resident camps designed to meet the unique and overwhelming needs of abused and neglected children. Child abuse happens around us every day. Thousands of children are physically, sexually and emotionally abused, and severely neglected. Though stories of traumatized children fill our newspapers, many cases are unreported. According to RAPCAN, as many as half a million children are abused annually in South Africa alone, with at least 100 cases of child abuse processed through the courts every day (www.rapcan.org.za). This growing problem is compounded by the horrific spread of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.
