Applauding the selflessness of the safety volunteers who open not only their hearts but their doors to victims of gender based violence, MEC Mazibuko appeals to the general public to do same “only if community members could join hands, South Africa will enjoy full women emancipation” said MEC Mazibuko.
In these Green doors a woman will receive counselling and accommodation for a period of three to four hours whilst the department will be looking for a placement in safe houses such as Ikhaya Lethemba, a one stop centre for abused women and children offering accommodation, medico-legal assistance such as court preparation etc.
Further four Green doors will be launched in Khutsong, Kagiso, Sokhulumi and Ekangala. This will bring a total of 28 Green doors located on ward base level to relieve long distance travel to a local police station by a woman in distress.
