UCKG's Women in Action drive 16 Days of Activism through interactive projects
Women in Action (WiA), a group of pastors' and bishops' wives from the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG), were invited to participate in the Gauteng Legislature's awareness expo held at the launch of the Citizen's Annual Report 2011/2012 and the commemoration of the 16 Days of Activism and World Aids Day at the City Hall in Johannesburg on 28 November 2012.
Exhibiting alongside the Gauteng Provincial Legislature (GPL) and some Government Departments, empowerment groups and independent organisations, WiA handed out white ribbons as symbols of peace and commitment by the wearer never to commit or condone violence against women and children.
Trained counsellors offered information on HIV/Aids, cancer and abuse to more than 100 visitors to the display. Visitors received information on awareness and treatment options with gratitude and many were referred to clinics for assessment and treatment while others were invited to attend support groups for cancer patients (It's all about you) and abuse (Save a Tamar).
