EASTERN CAPE
 
PORT ELIZABETH
A small yet effective rape support group meets regularly at Port Elizabeth Lifeline offices. A secure and loving environment; counsellors always present; survivors share their stories, pain and healing and bravely support each other.
To witness their healing is miraculous and I feel so privileged to be part of the group. I was raped 8 years ago and have been a firm part of the group for 3 years now. I recommend support groups to all survivors; having family members and loved ones attend can also be a great benefit to them.
