August has been classified as Women’s Month, and it’s not only about highlighting and recognising women, but reaching out to women in need.

The CSR Committee identified the Thuthuzela Centre at Karl Bremmer Hospital in Bellville this year to be the recipient of 16 care bags. Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs) are one-stop facilities that have been introduced as a critical part of South Africa’s anti-rape strategy, aiming to reduce secondary victimisation and to build a case ready for successful prosecution.

Female staff here at Edge/Alusi also have the opportunity to pay it forward and carry out an act of kindness by handing a care bag to a woman they may or may not know personally, but feel will appreciate it.
