The sad reality.

Violence against women is an everyday reality, act now, always, and forever before it’s too late.

 There are two days in every week which we have no control over… 

Yesterday and tomorrow. Today is the only day we can change.

 Physical aggression by a man against his partner is abuse 

Even if it only happens once

Thank you for your interest in WAR (Woman Against Rape) and the work we do in South Africa to prevent and assist those who have survived rape and/or abuse. It has been proven that rich or poor, every family has been affected by the devastation of rape or abuse. It is a sad day when you fear your child may have more chance of being raped than being educated. Raising awareness of the seriousness of this problem in South Africa is paramount to ending the rape and abuse that is tearing our families and nation apart!
How you can help


Our benefactors are the life force of the organisation. Small monthly amounts allow us to make big changes in people’s lives.

Corporate Social Investment

We believe that companies can gain by allowing their staff to participate in helping others with WAR’s CSI projects while also working together in teams and having fun drumming together. These extraordinary experiences will excite, motivate, unite and inspire people.


Do you have a skill you can share that will help empower someone, or a venue for an event? Maybe you want to help us get comfort packs to trauma centres in your area…
