As the campaign comes to an end, Overstrand Municipality's Social Department handed out care packs comprised of toiletries for adult victims, disposable nappies and baby formula to SAPS Trauma Rooms in Hermanus, Kleinmond, Stanford and Gansbaai.
According to Ronell Salies, the Overstrand Municipal Thusong Centre Co-ordinator, these are much needed items - "especially over the festive season where we see an increase in abuse against women and children. In support of this initiative we say, “enough is enough”.
On receiving the care pack for victims of abuse serviced by the Hermanus Police Station, Captain Fadila September said, “Thank you so much for this donation. These items will bring comfort and offer relief to those women and children who unfortunately find themselves in need of our assistance.”
