Wednesday-Gender -Heavens Shelter House needs your help!

Today it is a Wednesday that means we spoke all things related to gender issue. On today's show we we joined in studio by Crystal Delport from Heaven Helping Hands they are lending a had to the Heavens Shelter House which is based in Mitchells Plain.

Heavens Helping Hands is a group of students from CPUT(Cape Peninsula  University of Technology in cape town, this project is to arrange an event linked in with 16 days of activism against violence and abuse against women and children. Crystal being on of the students elaborated on why they choose to help this specific shelter. After the research that they did about all the different shelter we have in cape town they observed that the Heavens Shelter House cares for abused and abandoned women and children. They also identified that the shelter is in dire need of assistance and their biggest need as the moment is to raise at least R20 000.00 towards their long over due water account. She adds that their plan is to build a hygienic sandpit for the children to play in,various internal maintenance like fixing showers , wall and floor tiles and other necessary things in the shelter. They will be hosting a Outreach Day , the idea behind this day is to give these kids and women a day filled with laughter that every child and women deserves. This event is unfortunately not open for the public;for the residents in the shelter . However if you would like to help contribute to making this day extra special for them then you are more than welcome to contact Crystal on 021 483 6945.
