On Mother’s Day, 12 May, The Table of Peace and Unity will bring together 700 celebrities, religious leaders, citizens from all walks of life and captains of industry on Table Mountain to join together against child abuse and in particular, child sexual abuse.
We will break bread at a sumptuous feast prepared by top South African chefs, enjoy excellent entertainment including ,myself Nataniel, Sterling EQ, the Amy Biehl Choir and Kristi Lowe.
Sipho remarked ” I am honored to be invited and to give of my time to inspire and speak out about the abuse in our society”
Abuse has reached catastrophic levels. In South Africa, a girl has a better chance of being raped than learning to read. It is estimated that a child is raped every 17 seconds, which is totally unacceptable. Ordinary South Africans are standing up to say that we refuse to be the rape capital of the world.
All funds raised from ticket sales and auctions at the event are used to purchase safe homes, equipment and supplies for charities focusing on the needs of our vulnerable children. To date, the Table of Peace and Unity has raised over R14 million for more than 20 organisations around the country.
Past projects benefiting from The Table of Peace and Unity have been able to build facilities in which rape survivors are treated and counseled, purchase clinics in Soweto, KwaZulu Natal and the Western Cape, purchase vehicles, build playgrounds and fund community projects.
We have funded a trauma unit and treatment room for abused children at Red Cross Children’s Hospital and built an outdoor area for psychiatric patients at Tygerberg Hospital.
Join us at The Table of Peace and Unity. Tickets are available from Computicket or contact The Table of Peace and Unity at 021-702-2280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
