Rape Crisis First Response Counsellors on the Frontlines of Gender-based Violence

23 June 2017

Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust first response counsellors like Nononelelo Mganu are trained to listen to a rape survivor with compassion, and to support them through medical steps including preventative treatment for HIV. Counsellors are careful to minimize the trauma of re-living a rape incident, while facilitating the steps needed to protect the survivor, and to document the event for a court case if they choose to file one. Rape Crisis receives partial support through a Global Fund grant to NACOSA.
