On 9 December 2014, we spent a humbling morning at Usindiso Shelter for Abused Women and their Children – our contribution to the 16 Days of Activism. We met a group of brave women who surely didn’t deserve this – a young woman of 18 who was given in marriage at the age of 13 to an abusive man of 42, a tiny and beautiful woman with a tiny baby and terrible burns across her chest, a woman who is forced to face her abuser every month to beg for money for the children… These women and their children now have a safe place to live, but materially, they have nothing, and they all live in fear of being found. We loved spending time with the darling babies and children. We hope we made a happy day for them – yummy food, party packs, gifts for every single woman and child, mounds of toiletries, and much needed legal advice.

We continue to be committed to assisting people in a pro bono capacity whenever we can, and our ongoing efforts have recently been recognised by ProBono.Org.
