Dear residents of the Parkview precinct
CHILD PROTECTION WEEK: 31 MAY 2021 – 6 JUNE 2021
The week from Monday 31 May until Sunday 6 June 2021 is Child Protection Week in the South African national calendar of events and SAPS is celebrating this important awareness period with various activities.
Sergeant Phoko – the Social Crime Prevention Officer at Parkview SAPS – has arranged to visit two sanctuaries for less fortunate children in our precinct: Hope School and Guild Cottage. Hope School is a boarding school which caters for physically disabled children. Guild Cottage is a safe haven for girls who have been sexually abused.
The CPF and Victim Support Unit will be assisting SAPS to bring messages of support and hope to these children by joining in the visits, speaking to the children and giving each child a little gift.
An angel donor has already supplied pamper packs of warm clothes and toiletries for the girls at Guild Cottage. We now appeal to the residents in our precinct to donate to the CPF so that we may buy each child at Hope School a small gift to let them know that they are loved. There are 96 children in the Grades from R up to 7. We have consulted the hostel manager and decided to buy each child his / her own mug, filled with chocolates. We anticipate that each mug will cost R50 plus R25 of chocolates. This means that we are aiming to raise R7 200 by Friday 28 June 2021.
Please help us to provide some cheer to the handicapped and abused children who live in our precinct. Donations should be deposited into this account:
