Helping to build new lives for women and children at risk.

NAB has for the third consecutive year given the New Life Centre a much need cash injection. The media owner has donated R30,000 to the safe house that assists women and children. “We’ve elected to support the New Life Centre in lieu of corporate gifts again this year which our clients, suppliers and partners whole heartedly support,” says John Bowles, Joint MD at NAB.

“We’re pleased to be able to make a contribution and know it will make a huge difference in the lives of these women,” he contnued. 

Two exceptional women - Khopotso Nakin and Babalwe Makawula, created the New Life Centre. With no money, no support and at great risk to themselves, these two angels regularly visit the ‘prostitute hotspots’ late at night and rescue young children from the clutches of drug lords who lock them in sleazy hotel rooms and sell them for a pittance.

The shelter is situated in Lombardy East and is home to around 15 girls who otherwise would be living on the streets.  The house is fully furnished and has all the amenities to ensure that the girls have as normal a life as possible.

The New Life Centre can be contacted at newlifeforgirls@yahoo.com;   lynnbaker@iburst.co.za or through the organisation’s website on:  www.newlifecentre.org.za.
