SAPS Visited Stanza Bopape Clinic; Mamelodi East
South African Police Service (SAPS) and other stakeholders visited Stanza Bopape Clinic, Mamelodi East today to deliver the message to the community. It was an open day for the clinic and they invited different organisations to convey the message on behalf of their organisations to the community of Mamelodi.
SAPS was there to talk about services that they offer and careers for young people that are available within the SAPS. Other stakeholders such as SYNEXUS from the centre introducing their new vaccine that will help preventing HIV AND AIDS, Old Mutual, Avbob, Law For All, Department Of Home Affairs, Love Life, SASA, National Prosecuting Authority of SA, AIDS FUND, USAID and Department of Social Development attended the event and made people aware of the services they offer.
“We wanted to convey the message about safety, we had to give people information about careers in the SAPS, give them hints on rape and under age drinking”, said Captain Michael Mbewe, Mamelodi East Police spokesperson.
He added that the awareness program was a continuous programme and that they normally host their own in the community but today they were invited to the clinic. Both adults and youth from the community attended the event.
