ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - A service club in Aberdeen wants to combat child abuse through dolls that show what happens when a woman consumes drugs or alcohol while pregnant.

KSFY-TV reports (https://bit.ly/21McF6K ) that the Exchange Club of Aberdeen plans to observe National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April.

A different doll shows the harm to an infant’s brain caused by severe shaking. The exchange club is set to show the dolls to the local school board on Tuesday, and they will also be presented to high school students.

Donald Peck is the president of the club. He says one of the group’s primary goals is education about the prevention of child abuse.

The group also donates teddy bears for police officers to give to children removed from abusive homes.
