Organisations feed women and children

The newly established Women’s Network of the Kensington police, together with The Grow Love Foundation and Project Women Uplifting Women (Project WUW) served soup to the needy members of the community on Tuesday 6 August.

The programme which is the brainchild of Sergeant Angeline Grill, spokesperson at Kensington police station, aims to engage with and empower women. The project started by serving soup to residents of Gate 1 Informal Settlement in Maitland. “We could hand out a cup of soup and bread on a cold day and show the women of this community that the police care and wants to assist and that we are not far away,” Grill says.

According to Grill the project was established to assist women, especially those struggling to put food on the table and address their need as well as offer some help with crime-related issues while raising awareness around violence against women and children.

She says fighting crime proactively should not be underestimated.

“Going into the unsavoury places, like the informal settlements, frustrates and hinders the works of the wrong-doers. Crime cannot take place when there are activities in these kinds of areas,” says Grill. She thanked the officers who attended and those who helped with preparations, as well as donors.
