South African women are staring in the face of two pandemics: Covid-19 and women abuse.

As the Covid-19 pandemic rages on, reports show that incidents of gender-based violence have intensified, as thousands of vulnerable women are trapped in the house with their abusers.

To help counter the effects of the lockdown on abused women, the Sahiba Foundation has stepped up to support women with financial and emotional support, along with much-needed toiletries, food and clothing.

Tracey Lange chats with Zuma Nkomo, Director and Founder of Sahiba Foundation to find out how ordinary South Africans can help the organisation make a difference in the lives of vulnerable women who are bearing the brunt of the Covid-19 lockdown.

The reason why we had to come up with the whole initiative and thought we should make it as big as we can, was the high rise of GBV (gender-based violence) in our country.

Realising the high need and abuse that women are facing in our country, we thought, as much as the government cannot touch in all aspects of our women, we can get involved and make a difference.
