With the recent exposé about rape kits on MNET’s Carte Blanche, we were adamant at The Angel Network to help in any way we could. Sadly with the medical protocol involved, we were led to endless dead ends.
Despite the medical protocol that prevents us from doing more, we have together with Penny Stein – who has been instrumental in fighting this insurmountable cause – donated 2,000 RAPE CARE PACKS to clinics, drop-in centres, police stations & a bunch of very hard-working credible NGOs, who tirelessly work in this dark space daily. Our commitment to these RAPE CARE PACKS will be ongoing & we will be there to assist for as long as it takes. Individually, we cannot address the enormity of this problem, but collectively we can offer the victims of rape and abuse a moment of dignity.
The statistics of rapes in our country are staggering. It’s time we stand up & do something to assist those in this life-shattering crisis, we owe it to ourselves to do the right thing. While we would like to do so much more, we are urging our community members to assist us in this appeal, as we fight to get more heavily involved.
We cannot do this alone. We are asking everyone for their help. Please donate R120 per Pack to add to our 2,000 packs. We would like to double this initial contribution.
We are making up 4 different pack – woman , men, girls and boys – and each pack contains: Tooth brush and Toothpaste, Shower gel, Face cloth, Tissues, Deodorant (men and woman pack), Mouthwash, Comb, Sanitary pads (woman pack), Underwear, Sweets (for sugar), Apple Juice, Personalized note.
LET’S TAKE A STAND TOGETHER & HELP THOSE WHO NEED OUR SUPPORT.
