Practical ways in which you can get involved and help make a difference:
Toiletries and a car for the Epic Foundation (Gauteng)
The EPIC Foundation makes up incredible comfort packs for survivors of rape, abuse and human trafficking (be they women, men or children) and not just in Gauteng but NATIONWIDE.
One of the easiest ways to get involved is by collecting toiletries and other goods needed for these Comfort Packs and dropping them off at the EPIC offices in Jo’burg South:
- body lotion
- sanitary towels
- travel sized shampoo
- bars of soap
- small tissue packs
- wet wipes
- lip balm
- face cloths
- small bottled water
- hair combs or brushes
- lip balm or small Vaseline
- surgical gloves
- new underwear for men and women (all sizes) as well as children (ages 2 – 13 years)
The EPIC Foundation is also in dire need of a new car. Their current vehicle is over 20 years old and really starting to give problems, which also hampers their work and in some cases, delivery of the comfort packs.

Food and men’s clothing via Hope Risen (Gauteng)
We are currently stockpiling food and men’s clothing (all sizes but S and M in particular) as we are anticipating a large number of male labour trafficking victims over the coming weeks. Please drop all collections off for sorting and storage prior to delivery to the places of safety, at Hope Risen Foundation in Chartwell, north-west side of Jo’burg.
