CAPE TOWN: “I think God gave me a second chance so I could rescue other women like me,” says Mandisa Monakali, the woman behind Ilitha Labantu in Gugulethu.

The organisation, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, provides face-to-face counselling for women and children and raises awareness and community mobilisation around violence against women and children. Sisi Mandisa, who grew up in Gugulethu, says she is herself a survivor of abuse.
