CITY TRAFFIC OFFICERS AND SYNTELL TO DONATE SUPPLIES TO SAFE-HOUSES DURING CHILD PROTECTION WEEK

City of Cape Town Traffic Officers, together with Syntell, will visit two safe-houses for women and children on Wednesday 30 May and Thursday 31 May 2012 to donate food parcels, appliances, clothing and toys. This forms part of their contribution to Child Protection Week.

Place of Hope, established in 2001 and situated in Crawford, is a social outreach mission – a place of refuge that aims to address the plight of abused women and children. There are 35 rooms which house 80 people, including 42 children. Traffic Officers, in partnership with Syntell, will hand over non-perishable food products, clothing, toys and educational items.

Dusk to Dawn Haven in Ravensmead caters for 13 women and 19 children. Traffic Officers from the Road Safety Education Section will hand over a two-plate stove and a microwave oven, while Syntell will provide non-perishable food, clothing and toys.

This is also a way of forging a positive relationship with the community and road users.

Venue: Place of Hope, 233 Lawrence Road, Crawford

Date: Thursday 31 May 2012
Venue: Dust to Dawn Haven, 127 Christian Street, Ravensmead

Time: 11:30 on both days
