A GRIP SUCCESS STORY 

Two Mbombela rape cases that GRIP has been involved with have recently been finalised, resulting in a double life sentence for the perpetrator. GRIP supported the survivors during their ordeal.

GRIP works closely with the Criminal Justice System and supported the victims in this case from first point of contact that involves statement taking and PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) treatment, through to conducting home visits and ensuring completion of PEP treatment. Survivors also underwent court preparation and training to ensure that they were fit to give evidence in court thus resulting in guilty verdicts and sentencing.

EXPO STAND

GRIP recently exhibited at the Charity/CSI Exo at i'langa Mall. The event was organised by the KLCBT with the aim of introducing local businesses to NGOs that rely on the goodwill of companies and the public for funding. GRIP's stand drew a lot of attention and we were happy to welcome familiar and new faces! One of our visitors was Barbara Kenyon, our previous CEO, who engaged in some banter with Roxy (M&E) and Nomonde (social worker). 

GRIP would like to thank the KLCBT and ilanga Mall for organising the event and we are looking forward to many more. Thank you to  the GRIP staff members who tended to the exhibit and to all the kind souls who donated so generously.
