Victim empowerment centre feels the love of the community

Hennie Steyn, who runs the Primrose SAPS Victim Empowerment Centre, shows off his cupboard which is full of donations received from the community for victims of crime. He is thrilled with the generosity of community members.

Community members have opened their hearts to victims of crime by showing their support to the Primrose SAPS Victim Empowerment Centre.

Hennie Steyn, a chaplain who runs the centre, is overwhelmed by the generosity of community members.

“My cupboard is full of donations from people.

“I am so grateful and want to thank each and every person who has donated,” Hennie said.

Special thanks go to Emma De Camillis and her family and Debra Brits for the donations of underwear, baby clothes, baby products and baby necessities (for example bottles and teats).

Hennie has also received donations of books and toys for children and clothes for women.

The Primrose SAPS Victim Empowerment Centre is situated at the Primrose Police Station in Poppy Road, Primrose.

The doors are open to all victims of crime.

The victim empowerment centre has six volunteers who help victims with trauma counselling, as well as offering support in court.

The centre is still in desperate need of donations of sanitary towels, bras and second-hand clothing for women in smaller sizes.

The gifting of a container would also be welcomed as a storage space for donations.

Hennie encourages victims to report crimes straight away for evidence purposes.

To assist the Primrose SAPS Victim Empowerment Centre or if you are a victim of crime who needs assistance call the Primrose Police Station on 011 842 0500 or visit the centre.
