Reaching out to survivors of rape & trauma
KwaRescue provides support services for victims of rape, sexual abuse and trauma in practical and relevant ways – showing them comfort, dignity and hope when they need it most.
Our mandate is to provide support and care to victims within a safe environment, working to remove the shame and stigma one survivor at a time. We also support government departments and existing NGO’s who work in this area.
These are given to rape survivors at the RK Khan Hospital TCC (Thuthuzela Care Centre), bringing comfort and dignity while they wait to receive medical and legal assistance. The bags contain soap, underwear, snacks and other toiletries. The children’s bags also have a soft toy.
We have distributed 1300+ comfort bags so far
Currently in South Africa, counsellors are unable to meet the demand for rape trauma support. KwaRescue provides a specially trained volunteer who offers free counselling services to ensure more victims are reached and helped.
These are given to children who are testifying against their perpetrators at the Pinetown and Durban Courts. Many of these children travel many hours to get to court, arriving tired and hungry. The lunch helps them to cope better with the ordeal of the court process.
More than 1000 lunches given to kids
