Groblersdal SAPS reaches out to the needy

MASAKANENG – Groblersdal SAPS Crime Prevention Unit members took time off their busy crime fighting schedule to reach out to the needy within the community they serve.

The unit, through the help of the local business community and medical doctors, recently donated groceries and shoes to needy members of the community in Masakaneng settlement outside Groblersdal.

Consatble Julia Mampa, Groblersdal Police Spokesperson, said they managed to identify the three beneficiaries of the donations through the help of the Community Policing Forum (CPF) in the area.

Mampa said as Groblersdal SAPS they viewed the donations as a tool to revive the families’ morale and heighten the fight against crime in communities.She said the programme was successful in that it enjoyed participation of local businesses and members of the community in the form of the CPF.

“We approached local businesses and medical doctors who showed so much interest in helping the needy. We are looking at reaching out to more families who are also in need, and are appealing to more businesses to come on board and help us fight poverty, which might lead to crime, in our communities,” said Mampa.

Mampa said with the schools reopening for the 2018 academic year, they were looking at approaching more businesses to assist communities with school uniform for families that could not afford.

Daniel Machete (67), one of the recipients of the donations, said he was thankful for what Groblersdal SAPS, businesses and the CPF has done for them.

The unemployed Machete, who lives with his three children aged between nine and 15 years-old and his unemployed wife in a one-roomed shack, said the donations would help his family because they were solemnly dependent on child social grants to make ends meet.
