Zach's story

Zach's story

Zach* was still in nappies at four years old. He spoke at the level of an 18-month-old.

He was terrified of adults because the only adults he had ever known abused and neglected him.

Zach never had any of the things other children have growing up — no one to read to him, no one to play with him, no one to give him the care he needed.

This is not the childhood any child deserves. This is not a childhood at all.
