COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECT BY MILNERTON CLUSTER COMMANDER MAJOR GENERAL JORDAAN
WOMEN IN NEED OF SUPPORT
On Thursday, 28 March 2019 at 13:30 the Cluster Commander of Milnerton, Major General Aneeqah Jordaan, accompanied by the Table View Station Commander, Colonel Lindiwe Dyantyi, visited women from Happy Valley, an informal settlement near the West Coast Road.
The General addressed the women on domestic violence, sexual offences, general safety and their rights as women in our society. She expressed how important it is to seek assistance when in an abusive relationship and what to do when being abused. They were encouraged to speak out against abuse.
The impact of alcohol abuse in relationships and the role it plays in abusive households, was also explained.
The women were then given food parcels and pamphlets on information about domestic violence, sexual offences and robberies.
They expressed their gratitude to Major General Jordaan for coming to speak to them, for the food parcels and for her message of support.
