WHEN LOVE HURTS is a non-profit company committed to keeping Domestic Violence on the agenda through ongoing social media awareness campaigns, TV & radio interviews, fundraising events and sponsorship drives to culminate in a TV documentary for broadcast.

“It is through this visual story-telling medium, with its unlimited reach, that we can empower those who have been abused to pick up the fragments of their broken existence, and bring about a lasting change.”

Our projects

The Documentary

A When Love Hurts initiative

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE changes lives.

Abuse experienced at the hand of intimate partners is the most common type of violence, and the leading cause of death among South African women.

The endless high profile murders of women, and the excessive brutality of these murders, remind us daily of the enormous vulnerability of women generally.

It starts in the home, where women face the most violence. It is behind closed doors, where they are alone with the perpetrator, that they are their most vulnerable.

Project MASK

A When Love Hurts initiative

The coronavirus pandemic has affected us all.

If you have been left overwhelmed and uncertain of how to help then this is the project for you.

PROJECT MASK is an opportunity to join us and make a difference for R10 only.  With every R10 donated we will be able to supply a mask to someone in need.

To kickstart PROJECT MASK we have partnered with the Saartjie Baartman centre in Manenburg, a shelter for abused women and children, who will distribute where needed on the Cape Flats.

Let’s make it happen

Sure I’m in!
