On Wednesday, Stacey and JSbu had a mental health check with KZN listeners and on the show they invited Dr. Nokukhanya Khanyile. Doctor Khanyile is a medical doctor who has a keen interest in mental matters. During her interview with Stacey, Dr. Khanyile shared insightful ways that one can cope and deal with feelings of depression. 

If you missed out on that interview, listen below:

Stacey and JSbu were so overwhelmed by the response they received from KZN. The duo started thinking about women who are on the ground that do incredible work and may need some support.

One of those women identified by the team is the ‘Durban Women’s Hospice’. This organisation is a place of hope, healing, and new beginnings for and by women. The organisation provides a safe haven for abused and destitute women. No one is ever turned away. 

As much as we celebrate Women’s Day- we must never forget the plight of what we as women go through every day. This world is not kind to us. After chatting with one of the longest serving house mothers, Zelma Lewis the team quickly identified one of the organizations great needs. That need is shoes. 

The team contacted BATA who are a multinational footwear and fashion accessory manufacturer and retailer. With the assistance of BATA the team were able to donate over 150 pairs of shoes for the Durban Women's Hospice. 

Zelma, in acceptance of this donation shared what a major help these shoes would be for the organization who often get women walking into their home with not even clothes or shoes. 

Thank you BATA
