The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry is sending its employees to a shelter housing vulnerable victims of abuse and affected by HIV/Aids. The Wellness Unit of the Department will be engaged in a Corporate Social Responsibility Activity during an event at the Sarah Baartman Center.
The event is to make employees of the department aware of the goals of the 16 Days of Activism Campaign. "We want to encourage our employees to speak out against abuse on women and children," says Head of Wellness, Cheryl Damon.
"We want people to face the real trauma caused by abuse. That’s why were bringing them face to face with some abuse victims," says Damon.
