e had the great privilege to donate sanitary towels, washcloths, wet-wipes and soap to the Hug-A-Baby / Love-A-Baby foundation, to be included in their much-needed care packs. The wish, submitted by Wardah Smith, asked to assist with the necessary good to prepare the care packs handed out to victims of rape in the Western Cape’s informal settlements. The sad reality is that these victims (male & female) range in age from as young as 6 months, to the elderly.
Hug-A-Baby not only provides the necessary toiletries to these victims but also crayons and paper to the younger victims. The resulting drawings often play a critical role in the trauma counselling and in the prosecution and identification of the perpetrators of the crime.
Thanks to a generous contribution from our friends at Thebe Tourism Group, we were able to assist Edgar and his team at Hug-A-Baby with enough toiletries for over 200 care packs.
