OVER 100 people from the Verulam Child and Family Welfare (TCW) SAPS, Metro Police and Reaction Unit South Africa (Rusa) held a motorcade through the Verulam CBD last week as part of the campaign for 16 Days of Activism.

TCW social work supervisor Mala Pather said that despite 16 Days of Activism against abuse being over, this is only the end of the annual campaign, but the fight against abuse must continue on a daily basis.

Pather said during the motorcade educational pamphlets creating awareness around abuse were distributed and volunteers, social workers and police also spoke to the community on the roads.

"We are urging people to come forward and report abuse - whether they are a man, woman or child - because there is help available," said Pather.

"People must not be afraid because there are organisations and the police who are here to help."

Pather thanked everyone for their involvement in the various campaign events over the last few weeks, especially the volunteers who dedicated a lot of time towards awareness during the campaign.
