Social worker needed in NC

The DA in the Northern Cape calls on the provincial government to promote psychosocial welfare in the Namaqua District in practice and not just through empty pledges.

Dr. Isak Fritz, MPL and constituency head of the DA for Namaqualand, says their request for urgent intervention comes after the resignation of the only social worker appointed by the Northern Cape Department of Education for the district.

“We see no problem why the vacancy cannot be filled with a suitably qualified candidate sooner than soon.”

It is practically impossible for one single person to pay sufficient attention to all the communities spread out among this vast distance, especially when one considers the poor quality of the road infrastruc­ture, says Fritz.

Retrenchments at Alexkor, the drought’s destruction of agribusiness, a general increase in unemployment rates and the insufficiency of social welfare grants contribute to rising poverty levels.

Fritz says Namaqua is also not immune to the prevalence of sexual violence, rape and sexual assault.

“When young children are preyed upon by older predators, counseling is necessary for their souls to heal from the harm inflicted on their bodies. The time for the Northern Cape provincial government to act on its commitments to the children of the province is here”, says Fritz.
