Maggie in Africa donates $850 to Women Against Rape (WAR)
Noel, Marilu and Maggie are pleased to announce that we’ve donated US$850 (P8,500) to Women Against Rape (WAR), a non-profit organisation based in Maun, Botswana.
What does WAR do?
WAR supports abused women and children and works to address the issues that contribute to their abuse. WAR’s mission is to reduce the incidences and impact of violence against women and children in northwest Botswana through empowering women and children, providing support for survivors, public education and legal reform.
Among other things, WAR provides shelter, counselling and legal aid to abused women and children in a part of Botswana with limited access to such services. WAR also runs awareness raising and community education programs aimed at reducing gender based violence, sexual violence and child marriage.
