PATCH strives to HELP all child survivors of sexual abuse find HOPE and HEALING
PATCH is the ONLY organisation that specialises in the Prevention and Treatment of Child sexual abuse in the Helderberg area of Cape Town, South Africa.
We take pride in the fact that the communities we operate in have embraced PATCH in such a way that every disclosed and reported case of child sexual abuse is referred to PATCH – by the police, schools, clinics, welfare agencies and parents.
Our offices spread across the Helderberg basin – with the head office located in Somerset West – and 3 Satellite offices situated in Macassar, Strand and Lwandle.
