CapeTalk, in partnership with the Dis-Chem Foundation, has donated R120 000 to S-Cape, a place of safety for women rescued from sexual exploitation and trafficking.
Founded in 2010, the organisation provides physical, psychological and emotional care to women who are victims of sexual exploitation. Their vision is to see these women free and safe from exploitation, healed and restored, empowered with life skills and restored to a normal and sustainable life.
CapeTalk’s Africa Melane spoke to Miryam Danam, Founder of S-Cape on the show this morning and surprised her with the news of the donation.
Miryam was overwhelmed with emotion: “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you from me, S-Cape and most importantly, our residents.”
The Foundation’s Candice Osry: “The work that S-Cape does is so inspiring. They give women hope and provide them with much needed care and support. We are so honoured to help Miryam continue empowering the women with whom she works.”
The Foundation will assist the organisation with a monthly contribution of products worth R10 000 for the next year, totalling R120 000.
Every month CapeTalk and The Dis-Chem Foundation honour those who work tirelessly in our communities for their betterment. If you know of any charity organisation or group of individuals who dedicate their time to making a difference in their communities, and have a specific need – whether for funds or products, visit www.capetalk.co.za and nominate them for a Random Act of Kindness.
Building off the principles of Lead SA, CapeTalk strives to make a difference in the lives of its listeners by demonstrating how their actions and behavior can bring about change in their own community and in turn the City. The station and its listeners are partners in solving the issues that affect us, holding authorities to account when needed and doing their bit when the authorities can’t do it on their own. The audience as a result is responsive and willing and able to assist when called upon.
