LIHUE — The associates at the State Department of Health wore blue Friday.
Additionally, associates planted blue pinwheels in one of the open spaces in front the Kauai District Health Office in Lihue.
The Kauai associates joined other people who earlier planted blue pinwheels at the State Capitol to bring attention to child abuse prevention.
Last year, more than 5,000 children in Hawaii were reported abused or neglected with 50 percent of the reports confirmed, states the Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii website.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the activity at the Kauai District Health Office was one of several planned by Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii, a private nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse.
