Women’s Day is every day at GoG Careline

2016-09-14 06:00

WOMEN’S Day at the Gift of the Givers Careline in Pietermaritzburg is like every day - there are no special celebrations or song and dance.

Simply responding to her plea, giving sound to her voice, through kind compassion, non-judgment and respect for her as the master in her own journey; is a precious gift we extend to women, children, the aged, the destitute, the downtrodden, the lost and the bereaved.

However, this 2016 Women’s Month, we could not escape the many invitations that took us into schools, clinics, communities and onto several media platforms.

From being moved by themes such as “Still I rise”, to the promotion of girl-child education through the distribution of sanitary towels and personal hygiene packs, education about current issues prevalent in society and creating safe spaces for women to express themselves about issues that affect them directly, yet are pushed under the rug and alerting and encouraging them to use recourses that are available.

Not all is gloom and doom. We were inspired and motivated by the personal stories of individuals who found their way back from death defying experiences. They stand out as the beacons of hope in society. It is most heartening to hear women speak up passionately and voice their opinions, needs and concerns.

It is this resiliency and tenacity that spurs you on to continue to champion the cause of women, children, the aged and the destitute.

It’s been exhilarating on the one hand to know that we have made progress on many fronts but an equal weight sits in my heart knowing that there is still much to do. And so at GoG Careline counselling services we commit to another year of dedicated service through our phone lines, online and face to face counseling to individuals, couples and families.

In addition we offer tailor-made support to groups according to their diverse needs. We have some exciting events planned towards the empowering of women in the upcoming months. To find out more call 033 345 0163, extension Careline.
