ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A group of middle school students are trying to bring attention to child abuse.
April is child abuse prevention month. The students from Wilson Middle School near San Pedro and Gibson teamed up with Methodist Children’s Home to plant a pinwheel garden. Pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse.
“If anyone passes by and sees this they can read the sign there, and they can learn and spread the word,” said Ayush Adhakari.
“We are trying to catch their eye so they can see what’s been going on around here,” said Guadalupe Tapia.
The kids planted 500 pinwheels on Tuesday.
