Uzwelo, Jes Foord Foundation launch campaign to support rape survivors

Uzwelo Bags and The Jes Foord Foundation have joined hands to help support rape survivors, providing a purchased and donated bag, following the victim's initial reporting process, containing a selection of toiletries and care items to help start the journey from victim to survivor.

According to the campaign, sadly, up to 60% of bags packed are for children under the age of 12. The Jes Foord-Uzwelo bags and contents are carefully selected and designed to be relevant to different ages.

The Uzwelo bags, sponsored at R100 each, are manufactured from 100% recycled PET non-woven felt. Each unique bag is hand made by local heroes who are now earning a living that puts food on the table for their families, funds education and provides dignity and upliftment for their communities long-term.
