The month of August celebrates women in South Africa and we take this opportunity to join WiA (Women in Action) in their activities for the month.
This year a silent march was held through the streets of Soweto with 25,000 participants (as reported by the JMPD that day) who walked in absolute silence to send their message against violence and abuse of women and children. Their slogan was “I am not part of it” — meaning “I don’t abuse, ” “I don’t condone abuse by turning a blind eye” and “I don’t abuse myself with thoughts of low self- esteem, complexes, self mutilation or suicidal thoughts.”
Rahab counsellors will be available throughout the month to help women who might be dealing with any of the conditions relating to violence, abuse or those mentioned here. If you would like to set up an appointment, please send us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Help Line 0861 330 320. Please note that every case is treated with dignity and confidentiality.
