  Wendy Ackerman and Raymond Ackerman

“Being a patron of WHEAT and one of the founding members of the 1000 Women United Against Domestic Violence Initiative, I believe every South African should get involved in this initiative.”

“Women play an important role in society, in family and in business. This issue is very close to my heart, violence in the home needs to stop now!”

“Join me at the Cape Town International Convention Centre for our lunch on 16 May and help us support the fight against domestic violence.”

-Wendy Ackerman

  Yvonne Chaka Chaka – Princess of Africa

“A family cluster is very important and who said beating women will make them “subservient”? If children witness their parents being abused it becomes a vicious cycle which must be broken.”

“I am pleased to support WHEAT Trust and amplify the voices of 1000 women united against domestic violence and abuse.”

“This fits in with my work at UNICEF on a project called Zero Tolerance, focusing on child-headed homes, abused children and kids who are kept away from education.”

“The majority of these cases go unreported and we’re working hard to ensure that these situations are resolved. Children must be protected!”

-Yvonne Chaka Chaka

  Helen Zille – Premier Western Cape

“I am pleased to support 1000 Women United against Domestic Violence for their contribution to tackling gender discrimination and violence against women.”

“These social ills are rooted in patriarchy and still pose a major challenge in our society.”

“South Africa has a long way to go in making women and girls free, empowered and independent, especially in poor communities, but we can make steady progress if we get the basics right: a capable and effective state, active and responsible citizens and strong, functional families to help women and girls achieve true liberation.”

– Helen Zille
