If you or someone you know is a victim of abuse, the first thing that needs to be done is to report it. You can report it to a pastor, a teacher, a counselor, the police and others.
Even when watching a soccer movie bear in mind that dealing with an emergency requires calm and the right skills. Administering first aid is vital.
