A bruise can heal in 16 days but for the survivors of abuse, the veiled emotional scars last a lifetime.
The 1st for Women Foundation was established with the objective of uplifting and empowering women who have suffered from all types of abuse. Violence against women is a social tragedy because it not only transcends political, religious and economic boundaries, but it also has detrimental consequences on our nation at large. Not only does 1st for Women sponsor the annual Sisters with Blisters protest walk to bring an end to violence against women, but the Foundation has also donated over R49 million to date to various women-related charity organisations that focus on a number of activities that aim to put a stop to violence against women and help survivors of abuse get justice.
See below on how you can make a difference by uniting with us and making your voice heard at this year’s 1st for Women’s Sisters with Blisters protest walks.
