For the last two years, Cameron, a young lass of Ladysmith, has approached local businesses and wholesalers, requesting donations for a care package for rape victims, both women and children. Cameron was empowered after seeing a group of teenagers, who supply their SAPS rape crisis centers with care-packages. This year, she decided to set a goal and would like to make up 50 care packages and donate them to the four police stations within her area.
Being brutally raped is already a traumatic ordeal to deal with and then reliving the tale, when arriving at the police station, can add to the horrific situation. The care package is made up to allow the victims to find a little peace and restore some of their rights, which were ripped from them by their attacker. These care packages will be stored at the stations and handed to the victims, when police have finalised their paperwork. The care package will help make a small difference in the already painful challenge of taking the first steps to recovery.
