Wash up their nightmares with Hoover!

This December, Hoover is washing up and cooling down nightmares of young victims of abuse! WonderEight, global branding and interactive agency, created Hoover’s eye-opening campaign at all branches of Khoury Home and Abed Tahan across the country. The campaign aims at raising awareness about child abuse, a subject scarcely addressed in the Arab world. With every Hoover product purchase, a donation is made to himaya to sustain its fight against child abuse. Donation boxes are also present in all branches for donations, no matter how big or small, that make a difference.

The Story of Nabih

Nabih is a young Lebanese boy age 9 who lives with his mother. His parents divorced as his father left home and never came back when he was only 7. Since then, Nabih suffered from many learning difficulties at school and had a hard time opening up to others. His mother found it necessary for Nabih to get private teaching lessons at home after school. She then hired a tutor, Ziad age 28 who seemed like a nice young man who went to one of the best universities in Beirut. In no time, Ziad became a person of trust and almost a member of the little family.
Nabih's mother peacefully made her errands considering her son was at home in safe hands but what she didn't know was that Nabih was suffering from the harshest type of abuse. One night while Nabih and his mother were watching TV, she leaned in to kiss her son goodnight but was surprised to see him flinch and get away. When she asked him what was wrong, Nabih  desperately explained that he 'didn't want to be touched this way anymore' and went on asking firmly that Ziad not come  to the house the next day. His mother was immediately alarmed by what her son was suggesting and started asking him questions until she found out exactly what was going on during her son's so called 'private lessons'.
At 11h30 pm, himaya received a call by a terrified mother claiming her son was sexually abused by his own private teacher. himaya immediately intervened and made the appropriate medical tests to prove to the authorities that her son was telling the truth and finally put the abuser behind bars. A psychosocial strategy was put in place for Nabih and his mother to help both of them comprehend what really happened and deal with the horrific trauma that has affected their lives and more specifically Nabih's for more than a year. Today and with the help of himaya's multidisciplinary team of professionals, they both know that it's a long journey to recovery but the family is taking it one step at a time, trying to rebuild a safe circle and making undeniable progress day after day.
