Shine The Spotlight on Survival

Personal message

My name is Leilani Kuter (45) - Roodepoort, Gauteng. This year marks 27 years of survival after I was brutally raped and left for dead on 16 September 1992. Speaking up and sharing my story to inspire other victims to live their lives has been a big part of my healing in the wake of this horrifying incident.

This year, I plan to walk 27 kilometers per day for 27 days starting on the 16th of September to shine the spotlight on survival and raise funds for comfort packs. My last day will be at Ruimsig parkun on the 12th of October. 

Every step of my 729km journey will be taken in defiance of systemic violence against women and children in celebration of our collective survival spirit.

THE FUNDS WILL GO TO:

- Emergency comfort packs for girls between 5 - 12. These packs are handed over to the police.

- Counseling sessions for women. 

- Training programs for volunteers. 

Companies will get a Section18A certificate from the selected NGO's. 

OFFLINE DONATIONS:

THANK YOU PIERRE RETIEF FROM WWW.PIERRERETIEFINC.CO.ZA FOR DONTATING R40 000 DIRECTLY TO LEILANI TO COVER PERSONAL COSTS. 

THANK YOU JACARANDA FM FOR THE INTERVIEW ON GOOD MORNING ANGELS AND RAISING R72 000 FROM SPAR AND R50 000 FROM ROUNDTABLE.

IMPORTANT: USE THE INSTANT EFT OPTION. IT'S THE EASIEST. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
