I am a missionary in La Moskitia, which is an indigenous area of Honduras with very little professional medical care available. I help to run a children's home and we see a lot of children that have been sexually abused.
The child in question was sexually abused. We know that for a certainty. We are now having trouble with her soiling her bed and eating her feces. What could cause this and what can we do to stop it?
Help Please!
