Home Crime Awareness campaign on GBV

Awareness campaign on GBV

Gender Based Violence (GBV) is an alarming and growing concern amongst communities and on Thursday, 11 April, members of the Community Police Forum (CPF) from Amsterdam, held an awareness campaign at the Frans Community Hall in Amsterdam, to address some of these concerns.

The Awareness campaign event focused on women and representatives of various stakeholders such as the Department of Amsterdam Community Health Care (CHC), Amsterdam Department of Social Development, Positive Women Network NGO (non-profitable organisation) and the Amsterdam CPF attended the campaign and addressed the audience.

The Amsterdam CPF awareness campaign also launched the newly built Victim House and Pastor Nkosi opened the event with Scripture and Prayer. Captain Shange, Station Commander of the Amsterdam Police Station, addressed the ladies about gender based violence and what they could do if they become a victim or know of someone who has been exposed to such acts of violence. The campaign was well-attended.
