Child Protection Week: Protecting All Children Living in SA
Child Protection Week (29 May - 5 June 2022) is an ideal opportunity to bring issues of child abuse, neglect and all forms of violence, into the spotlight.
With this in mind, the Thusong Services Centre Co-ordinator of the Overstrand Municipality, Ronell Salies, visited Blommeland Kleuterskool in Hawston to hand over knitted jerseys and beanies to the toddlers.
She and teacher Inga Minnaar, also read books and sing songs to the children.
Suspicions of child neglect or abuse can be reported to any social/community worker or contact the Department of Social Development’s Hotline on 0800 428 428 or Free SMS line *120*7867#.
