Dear Editor

25th November marks the beginning of 16 Days of Activism for no violence against Woman and Children.

This letter just serves to educate, empower and commend those who are fighting the scourge of Domestic Violence and Abuse.

We all hear about the staggering statistics of Rape and Abuse and Violence against our most vulnerable of our society. 

Grace Help Centre commends the tireless efforts of similar organisations and individuals who stand out in the community standing up for the rights of victims of abuse.

If you feel you are or someone close to you is a victim of Domestic or Intimate Partner Violence or if you are living in fear of abuse then phone the Grace Help Centre Crisis Line on 072 348 6526.
