Sisters Abiding in Lighting and Truth members in Philippi dressed in their skimpy attire and took to washing cars as a means to raise funds on Saturday.

The Ladies Spring Car Wash for Women Against Domestic Violence and Child Abuse saw about 15 ladies washing cars opposite Ruth First Hall on the day.

Babalwa Jama, the founder of SALT, said it was a good day for the organisation as they managed to attract a good number of clients.

“It was quite interesting to see ladies wash the cars and it is a rare site in the township. We are trying to raise funds for our strategic planning which is due to take place in January.

We also want to make residents realise that they do not need to wait for government or any funder to give them money, but they can wake up and do anything for themselves,” Jama said.

Each member was expected to tout for at least one vehicle for the day.

Jama also said they are now planning to do the mobile car wash at least twice a month in different areas.

The next car wash will be at Corner Pocket, in Samora Michel, on Saturday 26 September and another one will be hosted at Ndoni, the following week.

“We appeal to residents to support such initiatives, because our organisation has a positive impact in community,” she added.

Neville Naidoo, one of the drivers who supported the car wash, said he did not hesitate to bring his car after he was told about its intention.

“I support the organisation because women are behind it and it is here for good reason. It is going to be nice to see them doing this continuously,” Naidoo said.

Naidoo normally takes his car to car washes in Bellville or Delft
