The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will mark the launch of the UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign (Nov 25- Dec 10) — an initiative of 16 days of activism concluding on the day that commemorates the International Human Rights Day (10 December).

This campaign, led by the UN Secretary-General and UN Women since 2008, aims to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls around the world, calling for global action to increase awareness, promote advocacy and create opportunities for discussion on challenges and solutions.

In order to encourage an open dialogue and break the silence, the UN Women is launching #orangetheworld, a social media campaign to raise awareness for the need for funding and to show solidarity with survivors. Nearly 1 in 3 women have been abused in their lifetime. In times of crises, the numbers rise, as seen during the COVID-19 pandemic and recent humanitarian crises, conflicts and climate disasters. A new report from UN Women, based on data from 13 countries since the pandemic, shows that 2 in 3 women reported that they or a woman they know experienced some form of violence and are more likely to face food insecurity. Only 1 in 10 women said that victims would go to the police for help.

Expert Cares recognises the desperate need to support, protect and stand in solidarity with our women and children of South Africa and across the world, too many of whom are silent victims.

After the successful 16 Days of Activism campaign we participated in last year, this year we’d like to show our support again by partnering with UN Women and pledged to donate R50 for every purchase of R5000 or more made at during 16 Days of Activism, (25 November – 10 December) to their nominated partner organisation, Bombani Shelter for Abused Women in Alexandra.

Join us in standing against the violence and help us spread awareness of the desperate need for funding faced by the organisations that focus on prevention and protection of women and children.

Even if you can’t support by purchasing anything, share and like our upcoming posts on social media to show your support and be a positive influence in your community.
