2012 Survivor Journey - Help for survivors of rape and abuse
Rape Statistics - South Africa & Worldwide 2011
"South Africa has some of the highest incidences of child and baby rape in the world with more than 67,000 cases of rape and sexual assaults against children reported in 2000. Welfare groups believe that the number of unreported incidents could be up to 10 times that number. The largest increase in attacks was against children under seven. A number of high-profile baby rapes since 2001 (including the fact that they required extensive reconstructive surgery to rebuild urinary, genital, abdominal, or tracheal systems) increased the need to address the problem socially and legally. In 2001, a 9-month-old baby was raped by six men, aged between 24 and 66, after the infant had been left unattended by her teenage mother. A 4-year-old girl died after being raped by her father. A 14-month-old girl was raped by her two uncles. In February 2002, an 8-month-old infant was reportedly gang raped by four men. One has been charged. The infant has required extensive reconstructive surgery. The 8-month-old infant's injuries were so extensive, increased attention on prosecution has occurred. A common myth holds that sexual intercourse with a virgin will cure a man of HIV or AIDS. Child abusers are often relatives of their victims - even their fathers and providers. According to researcher Suzanne Leclerc-Madlala, the myth that is not confined to South Africa. Fellow AIDS researchers in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Nigeria have told me that the myth also exists in these countries and that it is being blamed for the high rate of sexual abuse against young children."here

"In our culture, as a woman, you don't say no to a man.
Sex is not open for discussion, So they think they can do as they like."
Rose Tamae, a survivor of gang rape, who is HIV positive,
and counsels abused women and children,
Orange Farm, west of Johannesburg.
"In South Africa you have a culture where men believe
that they are sexually entitled to women.
...One of the key problems in this country is
that people who commit rape don't think they are doing anything wrong."
Dr Rachel Jewkes, a senior scientist
with the South African Medical Research Council
Rape - silent war on SA women, BBC, 9 April, 2002
Every 26 seconds in South Africa a woman gets raped, it was my turn last Thursday night. Before I began writing this I took AZT, 3TC and Crixivan — they are anti-retroviral drugs, they will hopefully help lessen the potential of me getting Aids from the rapist, assuming of course, that he is HIV positive. In a country where 1 800 people contract HIV every day, it’s a gamble I refuse to take.
