• Ukuva iAfrica NEEDS your HELP

by Mindy Yang

Ukuva iAfrica - "The Senses of Africa" is a registered Fair Trade organization supports the work of the Nonceba Child Abuse Center in the township of Khayelitsha in Cape Town.

Nonceba NEEDS your help... An unbelievable and bizarre belief among many African men that sex with a virgin -- even a child or baby -- can cure HIV/AIDS is fuelling what is already one of the highest child sexual exploitation rates in the world. South African police statistics show that last year alone, 21,538 rapes and attempted rapes of children under the age of 18 were reported. The trend is worsening. Babies as young as only a few months old are being raped almost daily.

Help Ukuva "Help the Helpless" in Africa. 2.5% of every sale of Ukuva iAfrica artisan products goes to the support and further education in South Africa. You can also donate directly to Nonceba here
