TEARS Foundation was founded in 2012 and is a Non-Profit organisation specializing in the development of a nationally accessible assistance and support network for survivors of rape and sexual abuse.
TEARS provides 24-hour access to information about where to find medical, legal and psychological support for victims of rape and sexual abuse, free of charge. Through education, TEARS also seeks to create awareness and facilitate the transformation of attitudes and values, so that sexual abuse of any kind becomes unacceptable in our society.
With South Africa being dubbed ‘The rape capital of the world’ TEARS is one of the many changes that need to be made to address the scourge of rape and abuse captivating our country.
