MORE 100 employees from the Tongaat Health Care Clinic took to the streets on 26 August to raise awareness about women abuse.

The march started at the clinic and proceeded towards the Tongaat CBD.

Men and women carrying placards chanted slogans calling upon women, who had been victims of abuse, to come forward.

The intention of a march was to commemorate Women’s Month and encourage women not to become victims­ of abuse.

Nursing service manager at the clinic Makhosazana Mncwabe said: “Women must be strong and supportive. We condemn women abuse and urge perpetrators of such barbaric acts to stop the shabby treatment of the women.

“Our main objective is to encourage women to report cases of abuse.

“We are tired of being abused and not heard in the society.

“Women are important in society,” she said.

Operation manager at the clinic Pam Naidoo urged women to unite and fight social ills.

“We are supporting a call from our Health MEC, Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo, on his campaign aimed at raising awareness about women abuse.

“The department initiated a programme to stop the abuse of women and children,” said clinic spokesperson, Noma Khoza
