Greeting Friends of Child Protection supporters and volunteers,

We promised we would keep you posted about a potential radio interview.

Cape Talk reached out to us on Tuesday about Sabine’s availability and great news she will be speaking to Pippa just after 2.30 pm today Thursday 20th October. 

There have also been a number of articles written about Sabine and Vuyo’s 13 peak challenge and explaining what Friends of Child Protection does and why we need the funds. I have included the links for those who are not on social media.

Peaks with a Purpose

Sabine Muller, 57, a physiotherapist, athlete and mother of two from Hout Bay, Cape Town, is getting ready to take on the 13 Peaks, an epic Table Mountain adventure, alongside her running partner, Vuyo Spamla, 47, to benefit abused children. Vuyo has one daughter and works as a domestic worker in Hout Bay and Camps Bay. Picture: Supplied

Peak for Purpose

Wanting to give back by using the 13 Peaks challenge as a vehicle, Sabine and Vuyo have launched a crowdfunding campaign on BackaBuddy to raise R100 000 for a non-profit organisation, Friends of Child Protection.

Friends of Child Protection , which relies entirely on volunteers and donations, distributes comfort packs to children across the Western Cape who have survived a violent assault.  

The packs provide comfort and dignity to children during a very traumatic time in their lives. The packs include snacks, underwear, face cloths and soap, a fun activity, a teddy bear to cuddle and other age-appropriate items including nappies and formula for the babies.
