Every child needs a guardian angel and you'll find plenty at Angels Care Centre, a non-profit organisation established to address the needs of desperately poor children from informal settlements in Howick, Kwa Zulu Natal. Supported by Blow the Whistle - an anti-crime initiative - Angels Care Centre has now officially opened a crisis centre for children who are victims of Gender Based Violence, abuse and neglect. Since opening, the Angels Care Crisis Centre has already started helping victims of sexual crimes receive medical assistance and collecting crucial evidence to help secure convictions of perpetrators.

20,000 women marched to the Union Buildings in protest of pass laws in 1956. But according to statistics, many, many more than that will be raped during August 2014 – the very month set aside to honour those women who fought for South Africa’s freedom. “In August 2014, statistically there’ll be a total of 74 400 rapes,” says Mike Rowley, Director of Blow the Whistle – Legacy Lifestyle’s independent initiative to create awareness about rape in South Africa. “Even though we fight this battle every day, August is the month we’ll make our biggest stand yet.”
