R1 million or R 30?

A recent research document by Solidarity shows that a child is raped every 4 minutes. Unfortunately very few of those crimes are reported.

Matla A Bana has been working since 2002 to help the thousands of raped and abused children who report the crimes against them, Last year we helped more than 3000 children through our various projects.

In order to help another 3000 children this year, we will need R1 million. It sounds like a lot of money, but in effect it will only take R 333 to help one child or a monthly contribution of R 30 will help us to help that one child.

If you would like to assist us, please email me on

We are a registered charity and Absa Trust is the manager of our funds – so your donation is in save hands and will be used to help these children. We will also issue a Form 18A at the end of the year – which means your donation is tax deductible – so rather help us than give your funds to SARS!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and hope to get that email from you!
