Help keep babies like Daniel safe
Every day, Victorian babies like Daniel* are suffering terrible violence and abuse.
Sadly, half the children who are removed from their families are under five years of age. Children so young need emergency care and specialist support to prevent long-term damage to their physical and mental health.
Daniel needs your help
At four-months-old, Daniel should have been getting lots of cuddles and positive attention from mum and dad. Instead he was fighting for his life in intensive care.
When he arrived at hospital, Daniel’s severe injuries suggested he had been thrown against a wall and stomped on.
"Daniel had been severely physically assaulted, a tiny baby boy who was black and blue."
- Katie, Berry Street Case Worker for baby Daniel
