BETHLEHEM. – Members of the police have aligned their attire to resemble the Green Ribbon.

The Bethlehem police, in conjunction with the Child Welfare Centre, held an event to mark Child Protection Week on Wednesday (01/06).

The little ones gathered at an open field in Bohlokong, where they were made aware of the dangers of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Basic protective actions such as how to cross the street safely were taught. Caregivers were also given lessons on how to assist once the child’s constitutional rights have been infringed upon.

Capt. Ze Mohobeleli, Bethlehem police spokesperson, said celebrating Child Protection Week would not be complete without fun and games.

“After the formalities, skipping, soccer, athletics, and other outdoor activities were the order of the day,” Mohobeleli said.
