We bring comfort and restore dignity to victims when we give them a “comfort pack” containing personal care products, clean underwear, sanitary pads, soft toy, sweets, chocolate and juice.

This may seem like such a small thing, but it gives back a sense of dignity to a person when they can wash themselves off and put on clean underwear again.

Children open up to the trauma workers more readily once they get the soft toy from our comfort pack in their arms to hold. Even the adults hug the teddies they receive tightly.

We have given out thousands of comfort packs already, but sadly there are still so many being affected by rape in South Africa, we cannot do enough.

There are many who contribute from small monthly amounts to knitting of teddies to corporate funding of hundreds and for each sponsor of goods or monetary value we are deeply grateful.
