Womens Home in Cape Town, South Africa
Sharing Love...Restoring Hope!
Shane Willard Ministries is passionate about restoring hope to the hopeless and we believe that true living is found in giving. It is our desire to help rebuild dignity in the hearts of the broken, destitute and down trodden through the extension of love. We believe that doing something for somebody who can't possibly do anything in return is what defines life for us.
Establishing Places of Refuge for the Broken
Many women living amidst poverty in South Africa divert to prostitution and drugs to feed their families and numb the pain. A lot of the women who choose to engage in this illegal industry step into it initially by choice due to poor education and lack of opportunity. They are no sooner picked up by a trafficker or pimp where they are then held at his mercy and force to perform. It is not uncommon for these women to be beaten, raped, abused, tortured and sometimes murdered. In fact, Cape Town is one of the rape capitals of the world. One in three women can statistically expect to be raped in South Africa in her lifetime.
In 2015 Shane Willard Ministries helped host two Trekking for Hope events in which over $93,000 was raised to help support our established safe houses in Cape Town, South Africa. These safe houses work on the frontlines of rescuing women and children who are enslaved in terrible sex slave trade conditions.
Through faithful support, women and children are rescued, housed, cared for, educated and often relocated to a safer community where they can use their newly acquired skills to pursue a more productive lifestyle as disciples of Jesus Christ.
A life poured out for the betterment of another is the greatest gesture of love!
