Mooinooi/ Rustenburg – Many women and children experience indescribable pain and trauma when they become victims of violence, rape or sexual abuse.  

Grace Help Centre, located in Mooinooi along the R104 road, is a haven and an ideal environment for physical and psychological healing to women and children seeking refuge and shelter. 
The centre is currently home to 50 children. Some of these young ones were abandoned while others experienced some form of trauma as a result of abuse. 

The centre provides the perfect environment which allows them to be children again. 

It is a safe place for women suffering from the effects of gender-based violence and it gives victims a chance to live a life free from fear. It also allows them to focus on getting their lives back on track.  
A donation to Grace Help Centre will go a long way in helping the facility to continue helping those who need help. 

There are many ways you can help. 

If you are a website developer or if you are knowledgeable about social media, help us to create a media strategy to enable us to reach out and make more people aware of our services. 
The centre provides shelter to more than 75 people and as such beds and bedding are the main priority on the list of the things they need.   

There is an urgent need for 20 beds, plain fitted sheets, plain pillowcases as well as scatter cushions. 
Why not challenge your colleagues to a bed race or organise a bedding drive during an employee volunteer day?  

You are welcome to visit them and to see the amazing impact of your act of kindness.  
Grace Help Centre also needs two large washing machines, craft materials, paintbrushes, craft glue, hand sewing essentials, fabric off-cuts and stuffing. 

They require sports and gym equipment, sportswear or accessories for boys and girls and English and Afrikaans magazines for school projects.   

Grace Help Centre is registered with the South African Revenue Services (SARS) and we will gladly issue a tax rebate certificate for the value of the donation. 

Big or small, your donation will certainly go a long way in making a difference.
