The National Shelter Movement of South Africa has urged victims of domestic abuse to follow its safety plan to get to a shelter as soon as possible.
It says the forced isolation during the national lockdown has increased domestic abuse.
The movement's spokesperson Natasha Adonis says victims can reach out
to them or the Western Cape Women's Shelter Movement on Facebook for assistance.
She says, " Of huge concern is the amount of people that are worried about how to get to a shelter, the transport.
Please just try to get to your nearest SAPS station or a safe place.
Transport for victims of GBV has been put into place either by SAPS or by an Uber service that can be activated by any shelter belonging to the national shelter movement.""https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/102818645_3242076809178014_845198282034321498_n.jpg?_nc_cat=103&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=Px8qqt-hLNAAX923EWK&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&oh=57c56913860fd752658ce985f1ee2724&oe=5F03D8D8"
