"There can be no greater gift than that of giving one's time and energy to helping others without expecting anything in return." - Nelson Mandela
GRIP House, Piet Retief
One of TWK’s Mandela day projects was to support the GRIP House in Piet Retief with much-needed food supplies and a new roof for their carport.
Since 2000 GRIP has provided healing and support to over 25 000 survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. As the struggle against sexual and gender-based violence continues, GRIP’s services have become even more essential to our community.
We applaud their efforts in supporting and housing the families affected by gender-based violence.
TWK’s second initiative for this year's Mandela day was to support a safehouse based in a rural area to protect and shelter abused children.
The host of the safehouse acts as the children’s guardian until such time which they can provide a safe haven for the children in need.
There are currently six children being cared for in this safehouse, where the host works closely with the local municipality to provide safety for these children. TWK Agri made a contribution to the children through food items and day-to-day toiletries.
