Fragrance of Freedom Campaign donates to WMACA

The WiA campaign, Fragrance of Freedom, was launched in Soweto on Women’s Day, with the aim of spreading awareness of human trafficking.

Since its launch WiA members have worked tirelessly making hand crafted bracelets which are sold at R20.00 each to raise funds for this cause. All proceeds will be donated to organisations combating trafficking and offering assistance to those who have fallen prey to traffickers.

The first donation was made to the Berea-Hillbrow Home of Hope, an organisation which has helped to rescue and rehabilitate young girls who have been victims of abuse and sex slavery for the past 11 years. Now WiA is pleased to announce the second donation in this campaign. A further R20,000.00 was raised and donated to Women and Men Against Child Abuse (WMACA ).

This organisation, which was formed in 1997, is extremely outspoken in its fight against child abuse. They provide specialised child-abuse facilities as well as support programmes aimed at breaking the cycle of abuse and providing child-friendly centres where young abuse victims receive medical and psychological treatment. We thank all our supporters for making these donations possible and helping WiA to spread the Fragrance of Freedom.
