Bullslingers need your help for young victims

2011-04-25 00:00

THE heartfelt gesture by the Port Shepstone Bullslingers and Port Shepstone Child Welfare to make up and give a toy and care-pack to a four-year-old victim of indecent assault may well give the brave little victim a sense that the community do care about her.

The young girl — who was indecently assaulted by her 13-year-old cousin in Oshabeni at the beginning of March — was extremely excited when Captain Sunil Singh of the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit handed her a stuffed Barney toy from the Bullslingers and a sweet and toiletry pack from Child Welfare.

The toys donated by the Port Shepstone Bullslingers and packs donated by the Port Shepstone Child Welfare were handed over to the FCS Unit for this very reason.

The entire Hibiscus community rallied together and collected mounds of toys for child victims.

The acting commander — Captain Sunil Singh — expressed his sincere gratitude for the caring attitude and interest shown by the community as the toys will contribute to a large extent when interviewing the young victims.

Anyone who wishes to donate any toys can contact Ernest Meier from the Bullslingers on 082 773 7204.
