“THE book Why Hope Matters teaches victims and families about rape and how a parent can tell when their child has been sexually assaulted,” said author Sister Dudu Ndlovu of Thuthuzela Care Centre.

Ndlovu will launch her book on 14 November at Kapenta Bay Hotel in Port Shepstone from 1pm to 4pm.

Ndlovu is an expert in this field as she has worked with victims for many years.

She began writing her book in 2013 after realising how dealing with rape victims­ affected her.

“The reason why I wrote this book was to get through the trauma I experienced after sessions with rape victims every day. I thought writing everything down would make it easier to relieve the emotions I deal with,” said Ndlovu.

Her book is targeted mainly at parents as it explains different scenarios parents might find themselves in if their child has been raped, especially toddlers who can’t tell if someone has done something to them.

“Basically the book offers counselling and encourages victims to speak out.”

Tickets to the launch are R150 and includes a copy of the book. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Those who want to attend the launch must phone her on 082 488 5754 after 4pm.
