Matla A Bana - A voice against child abuse
WHAT WE DO:
COMFORT PACKS: We donate emergency comfort packs for little girls between 4 and 12. These packs are given to them when they report the crime in a most traumatic time of their lives. It can often take up to 12 hours for the child to give a statement, have a medical examination done and receive the immediate emergency assistance. It contains comfort and emergency goods. We need at least 200 packs per month in each province. The cost of a pack is between R 170 to R 200 per pack. Karen Zoid helping with comfort packs KFM/Cape Talk Comfort Packs
CHILD FRIENDLY REPORTING FACILITIES: We create child friendly reporting facilities at SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences units. These facilities are completely child friendly and are also equipped with state-of-the-art recording facilities assisting the police. These facilities offer a safe environment where children can be assisted. Visit a Child Friendly Facility with Matla A Bana video
TRAINING: We have trained more than 6 000 police officers, prosecutors and doctors with specialised skills to be able to assist our child victims.
SCHOOL PROGRAM: Our Smiley character teaches our children about how to protect themselves and what to look out for. We reach between 10 000 and 15 000 children a year with this project.
