SACWA is proud to serve both rural and urban communities. Service to the country, through women, for women by women is still the vision of this Association. SACWA provides basic emergency assistance to families in need through the SACWA Emergency Aid Fund. Assistance is provided by recommendation from a social worker, counsellor or Association members. SACWA uses every dollar raised for this purpose as it does not take out administration costs.
