The report stems from the review of a severe case of child neglect involving a family of five young children. This review found violations of the children’s rights to: be protected from all forms of violence including neglect, a decent standard of living, health services, rest, leisure and engage in play, and parental and state supports in their child-rearing, prior to their placement in care.
