Victim’s room gets support

To celebrate Mandela Day, on Monday July 18, teachers from Steenberg, Heathfield and Retreat educares donated care packages to the Steenberg police victim friendly room. The packages contained toiletries as well as colouring-in books with pencil crayons, sweets and chips and a card with a special message for the children who are helped at the room, where trauma counselling is provided to victims of crime. The teachers are seen here with Steenberg police spokesperson Warrant Officer John Bartlett. Steenberg police urged residents to donate useful items to the victim support centre. Call the police station on 021 702 9000 if you can help.
