Group makes a difference

Ruth Women Rising (RWR), a group of young Stellenbosch women of goodwill, on 7 June celebrated a year of reaching out to local communities, helping those in need by providing nutritional meals, warm winter items and sanitary items.

Aside from this, says Melrisha Hendrikse, a member of RWR, the group also assists with special needs in households when specific needs other than the common needs occur.

She explained how she and the other women – Tiffany Woodman, Kay-Dee Adams, Nadine Hendrikse and Ghouwa Manuel – had seen how the Covid-19 pandemic was affecting their neighbours, community, friends and family, and they knew they had to do something. From this Ruth Women Rising sprang up and grew, and their chosen name is intended to herald their work as something far greater than they are. “The slogan for Ruth Women Rising initiative is ‘Living through God’s unfailing faithfulness’, and this is what carries us,” Hendrikse points out. “We plan on going deeper by connecting with young females in the community, to restore their self-worth and value, and to remind our youth of their potential”.

They thank all those who have donated to Ruth Women Rising over the past year and volunteers for assistance.

The group believes they will continue to grow for many years to come.
