ABOUT US

Sisters Incorporated plays a critical role in protecting, supporting and empowering women and their children who are survivors of domestic violence, abuse and stigmatisation that is so prevalent and widespread in our communities.

With a history spanning over 60 years in Cape Town, Sisters Incorporated has evolved from being a refuge for single mothers into a safe haven caring for women and their children.

We provide care – free of judgement, criticism and bias – and aspire to empower those who pass through our doors, to become better equipped for their role in society.

Sisters Incorporated is a beacon of hope in a community plagued by domestic violence and abuse; providing care, lodging, counseling and skills to those who need it the most.

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.
