Pad Drive 2022
Women4Women Sanitary Pad Drive championed by 1st Princess Roxy van Bruewane, with Dear Bella Pads July – August 2022.
Mrs South Africa is truly a life-changing journey for the women who enter this renowned empowerment program. Mrs South Africa delegates are between the ages of 25-55 years of age and are mature, driven, ambitious and most of all real, relatable women who strive to be the best versions of themselves. They are wives, in some cases mothers, some are entrepreneurs and most are change makers, some are business women and others home makers, but they all want the best for their families and their community. They are brave, bonafide superwomen.

South Africa Animal Cancer Association (SAACA)
SAACA was established as a need for animals with cancer. As the 4th in the world SAACA will fill the gap for the animals with cancer in Southern Africa. Cancer has always been seen as a human illness, but little does everybody know that animals are diagnosed and die of cancer as humans do. In one study, 45% of the dogs that reached 10 years of age or older died of cancer. SAACA is the first organisation in Africa that will focus on cancer and animals. SAACA’s main objectives are working with Onderstepoort as a research institute. Secondly, to do sterilization in rural areas and to educate the public on the topic. SAACA is so excited to have taken hands with the faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Pretoria, who will be conducting the research of animals with cancer.

Family Protection Association (FAMPRO)
FAMPRO is a pillar of hope standing tall on behalf of the vulnerable and exploited offering them strength, support, and compassion in their time of dire need, allowing them a real chance in life so that society can bloom to a tapestry of love and empathy. Their team of experienced professionals have always been passionate about victims of family abuse, of any kind, and looking at statistics of abuse and violence, in families, has shown shocking numbers but what they never show is how many of the victims are saved. Fees and costs are associated with access to justice at every stage of the legal process. Such expenses constitute a major barrier for those who cannot afford them. That’s when FAMPRO realised how many victims were stuck in their environment just because of a lack of financial resources.
