Women’s month is a time of the year where we remember the courageous South African women who stood up and fought for equal rights in our country and those who continue to fight for those who don’t have a voice.
The MM Studio is made up of 7 strong empowered women, however we cannot forget that there are many girls and women in our city, who haven’t had the same life path. This is why we have decided to run a collection for an important organization in our city, Ons Plek.
“Ons Plek is the only residential Child and Youth Care Centre in Cape Town that specialises in developmental and therapeutic intake services for girls who have lived, worked or begged on the streets of Cape Town.”
Consisting of a few programmes, Ons Plek facilitates between 100 and 150 girls a year with the process of reuniting with their families, integration back into school and the safety of a home. It is organizations like this that we believe deserve to be supported, at this time of the year especially.
We are collecting toiletry donations at our store for the whole month of August. Below is a list of items needed:
Sanitary towels | Soap | Shampoo | Deodorant | Body wash | Body cream
All of the items donated will be delivered to the Ons Plek facility for the girls in care to utilize.
Store address: 69 Roeland Street, Cape Town
