Tshepong Thuthuzela Care Centre

Thuthuzela, the Xhoza for comfort, is exactly what this centre stands for.

Victims of sexual abuse, rape & physical abuse are given back their dignity and hope at the Thuthuzela Care Centre.


The Thuthuzela Care Centre is located at the National District Hospital in Bloemfontein where a doctor conducts a medical examination, the victim’s statement is taken by the investigating officer on call at the centre and the victim receives further medical treatment.

This process, together with trauma debriefing and counselling by the social worker on site, in a safe comforting environment allows victims to become survivors.
