SASCOC commemorates 16 Days of Activism for no Violence against Women and Children Campaign.
SASCOC joins the rest of the nation and the world at large to commemorate the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children Campaign, which is running under the theme: “Count me in”.
The international campaign, which raises awareness of the negative impact that violence and abuse have on women and children, runs from 25 November to 10 December.
Says SASCOC CEO, Tubby Reddy: “As the nation’s macro sports body, we support this cause and encourage the nation and the world to play a fundamental role in the protection of women and children and put a stop to violations against both.”
Comments SASCOC President Gideon Sam: “We believe this campaign should be applicable not only for one but 365 days annually. Only sustained campaigning and lobbying will get a message through loud and clear.”
“SASCOC supports this campaign wholeheartedly and we believe all our citizens must live their lives in peace, fearing nothing. We call on all our sports activists to drive this campaign to ensure that the message goes through,” Sam added.
