What does dignity mean to you? To Susters4Life, it means listening to, supporting and believing women.
Susters4Life is a South African organisation that works to achieve safety and support for women, single-mothers, victims of GBV and child-headed families.
On Friday, 27 November, Susters 4 Life Co-Founder, Reneé Thompson participated in a live twitter chat organised by Safe Speak to discuss ways each civil society can participate in ending GBV.
Fighting period poverty is an important part of our work at Susters4Life. Our Dignity Drive is focused on making reusable cloth sanitary pads available to those who need them in rural and underprivileged communities.
With the current concerns around the spread of the COVID-19 virus, much of our focus has been on how to make better standards of health and hygiene more accessible to vulnerable South African women.
This month, Susters4Life is launching a dedicated Whatsapp line, created to help women in crisis who don’t know where else to turn.
As an NGO committed to uplifting and supporting the most vulnerable people in our community, the Susters4Life team is excited to announce our involvement in a project that will raise funds and donations for those who need them most.
As South Africans endure the nationwide lockdown in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, Susters4Life continues to support women and other vulnerable citizens in every way we can.
At Susters4Life, we have always made it our mission to support the most vulnerable people in the Western Cape’s poor rural communities.
During our 16 Days of Activism campaign in December (16 Days, 16 Towns, 4 Susters), we travelled around impoverished towns in the Western Cape and met with the communities there, to uncover the challenges they are facing.
