The Sahara Shelter



General Information

The Sahara, a shelter for abused women and children, was established in September 1994 in Phoenix, north of Durban. The shelter was set up with funding from the Ubuntu Community Chest and other donors. The Sahara Shelter provides short term accommodation to abused women and their children who are in crisis.


The sustenance of this valuable resource comes from various fundraising efforts of the Phoenix Child and Family Welfare Society, generous sponsorships and donations.
