As part of the National Child Protection Week between 29 May until 04 June 2022, the  Moeka-Vuma police station in partnership with the Community Police Forum (CPF) joined forces with other stakeholders to raise awareness on children's rights through a visit to Morena children's home at Ratsiepane village.  Stakeholders who participated, such as Department  of Health, Social Development, Education,  Emergency Medical Services, Moretele Local Municipality, Traditional leaders and  a Ward councillor. Non Profitable Organisation(NPOs) Katlo and Save Our Souls (SOS) also took part.

According to the Children's Act ( Act No 38 of 2005) children have a right to a safe and secure environment. It is for this reason that learners from local schools such as Pholokgolo and Ramoshiye Primary schools were taught about bullying, violent crimes as well as the toxicity of substance abuse.

 The  learners were further  encouraged to report any form of abuse to their parents, educators or police. The Children were also showered with gifts by SOS.

"It takes a village to raise a child".
