As members of SASOG and stewards of promoting excellence and equity in women’s health, we call on you to actively support the 16 Days of Activism against Women and Children Abuse and to pledge your commitment beyond the 16 Days to ending the scourge of GBV in our country. 

 

We would like to ask that you show your support and make a personal commitment by wearing black or a black armband every day for 16 days, beginning on the 25th November until the 10th December – except for World Aids Day on the 1st December, when we should wear red.  Please send us pics of yourself wearing your armband/black attire that we may post onto our website to raise awareness around our efforts. 

 

To demonstrate our commitment as an organisation, SASOG will be making a R15 000 donation to the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children and we would like to throw a challenge out to members to donate to the same organisation.  You are welcome to make your donation into SASOG’s bank account and we will pass it on. Alternatively, please make a deposit directly to the SBCWC via the ‘Donations’ page on their website.

Please use ‘SASOG’ as the reference.  

Let’s all participate and show our commitment to ending the scourge of GBV in South Africa!  

 We would like express our heartfelt gratitude to all our health professionals - our physicians, nurses, emergency responders, pharmacists, lab technicians, allied health professionals,  and administrative staff.  During this crisis they have selflessly risked their own health caring for COVID patients, while also continuing to care for patients who have other medical conditions. THANK YOU
