THE Umvoti Aids Centre is pleased to announce the six months Solidarity Fund funding for GBV programme in ward 5,7,10 of uMsinga sub-district and wards 2,3,4,6,7 and 8 of uMvoti sub-districts, in support of critical activities and services related to addressing gender based violence.

General manager at the centre Sithuthukile Mchunu said: “It is unfortunate that we see more cases of women and children experiencing physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, most frequently from their partners.

“The society has to be a custodian of the solutions for their communities if we are to make a meaningful impact; we will assist this process through awareness campaigns, door-to-door campaigns, dialogues, strengthening of stakeholder networks, and oversee the establishment and running of self-help groups for economic, educational and social empowerment of vulnerable population groups.
