Offering a hand-up instead of a hand-out
Sisters Incorporated aims to help every woman, teenager and child in crisis heal physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Through the eyes of a fictional female survivor, this book charts the remarkable 60-year history of Sisters Incorporated. It begins when the indomitable founders, Lyn Veldhuizen and Sue Henderson, who registered Sisters Incorporated as a social welfare organisation for single, pregnant white mothers in 1959.
The book records the growth of Sisters Incorporated through the apartheid years to the coming of democracy to South Africa in 1994, and from whence Sisters Incorporated flowered into an organisation open to all women, regardless of colour, creed, race or economic circumstances. From that time its doors were open, not only to unwed mothers, but mainly to abused women and their children. It is a remarkable testament, despite all odds, to the resilience of the women of our country, both for those who flee abusive relationships and for those who contribute selflessly to their healing.
This is their story.
