Jes Foord became a heroine to many in South Africa when she established The Jes Foord Foundation (JFF) following her traumatic gang rape by four men. Jes's story is both moving and inspirational. Her courage and strength of purpose in the face of a horrific crime has resulted in something truly good coming out of something very bad. The JFF offers support and counselling to women who have been raped and have various awareness; educational and mentorship programmes. The vision and mission of the Jes Foord Foundation is to create centres that will help and assist in reducing the debilitating effect that rape has on the lives of rape survivors and their families.
