Pad Run Handover – Vheneka

Pad Run Handover - Vheneka

The Hollywood Foundation has joined forces with the Pad Run and Flutter By LKG to transform the lives of many women across the country. This initiative includes the provision of sanitary pads to various organisations across the country that seek to support women from all walks of life.

On 1 March 2022, the Hollywood Foundation Team from the Western Cape, alongside members from Flutter By LKG, visited Vheneka, an organisation based in Cape Town. The desire to develop an empowerment vehicle for vulnerable women who are survivors of gender-based violence, human trafficking and prostitution, prompted this organisation to develop in 2017. The organisation has many goals, such as getting their culinary course accredited. Popular music personality, SPHEctacula, was also present at the handover, and he was proud to also make a meaningful difference at this organisation.

Marilyn, an Executive Director at Vheneka, explained that before this contribution, the organisation was struggling, however it was a priority to ensure that women received their monthly supply of sanitary pads. In order to do this, the organisation cut down the budget for the ingredients used for the culinary course. Marilyn also thanked the Team for supplying the organisation with an adequate supply of sanitary pads, and said that it will help with the stability of the organisation’s budget.
