Help Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban

Give Now

Women in sex work are particularly exposed to health risks and personal danger. They and their children lack stable housing and reliable food sources. Recently, the Umthombo weMpilo office has moved to a more secure part of the church grounds and now offers emergency accommodation for people in need.

During the Covid-19 crisis, the Umthombo weMpilo team continued to provide essential support, prayer, and counselling to the women they care for via phone. They are delivering care packages of basic necessities to the women they support. The hardships of 2020 have seen more women in desperate situations as they try to support their families.

Real stories

Aged 22, Thandeka has one child and is not working. She said,  “I appreciate the help that Umthombo has given me. It has made my life better. May God bless you.”
