Unchain Our Children Operatives Team Brought Child Labour Trafficked Victim To Safety

Unchain Our Children Operatives Team Brought Child Labour Trafficked Victim To Safety

Unchain Our Children Operatives Team Brought Child Labour Trafficked Victim To Safety In the mire of child trafficking statistics, saving one victim at a time is progress.  Such was the case when a joint operation between UOC and SAVETHEM operatives led to a successful extraction of a minor caught up in the most horrendous entanglement of labour- and sex trafficking in South Africa. Standing tall and brave, the victim, still extremely traumatised, was brought to a place of safety where hope was visible again on the horizon.  A life was extracted from despicable abuse and unimaginable suffering. An industry so atrocious as child trafficking is a reality in the lives of many young victims and the general public needs ...

New Beginningz Donating Baby Formula To Unchain Our Children

Give and take, normally creates great balance.  However, Give and Give, seems to be the epitome of abundance.  Such was the case when Unchain Our Children was blessed with a bakkie-load of baby formula from New BeginningZ recently. Wayne van Onselen, Founder and Executive Director of Unchain Our Children received this huge donation of baby formula from New BeginningZ and it will be distributed among several places of safety UOC serves.

South Africa: What Are Sexual Offence Crimes?

The Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act 32 of 2007 (Sexual Offences Amendment Act or SOAA) protects any person who has experienced any of the following:

  • Rape occurs when a person forces another to have sexual intercourse without their consent. This is a crime and must be reported. The SOAA also makes it a crime for a person to force another person to rape someone. This is known as compelled rape.
  • Sexual assault occurs when a person sexually violates another person without their consent. This is a crime and must be reported. The SOAA also makes it a crime for a person to force another person to witness or perform sexual acts to someone. This is known as compelled sexual assault.
  • Sexual grooming occurs when a person educates, introduces or prepares a child or a person living with mentally disability to perform or witness any sexual act or became sexually ready. Children are usually unaware that the person is grooming them for sexual acts because this person is often nice to the child. In most instances, after realizing the motive of the person, the child is scared to report this because the incident could have been taking place over a long period of time. This is a crime and must be reported.
  • Incest occurs when people who are related and are not allowed to marry each other engage in a sexual act with each other. This is illegal even if they both agreed to do so.
  • Child pornography occurs when a child is used for the purpose of publishing pornographic material.
  • Child prostitution occurs when a person uses a child or any person living with mental disabilities in sexual acts for a reward or expose them to pornography.
