LIFELINE Pietermaritzburg’s first march and “die in” last week was a success and rallied together many people who either supported victims or who were victims of gender-based violence (GBV).
The event was the first of its kind and was held in partnership with the Aids Healthcare Foundation Southern Africa to raise awareness about GBV and in celebration of the beginning of the international 16 Days of Activism Against Women and Children. The march began at Thandanani Children’s Foundation in Langalibalele Street and ended at the Bessie Head Library where the “die in” took place.
This was a representation of the many lives lost as a result of GBV.
To end the day a debriefing session took place at the Msunduzi Voortrekker Museum Complex attended by various organisations and the public.
