Foundation in memory of Reeva Steenkamp to fight abuse

A foundation has been initiated in memory of Reeva Steenkamp. The aim of the Reeva Steenkamp Foundation is to continue with what Steenkamp began before she died - campaigning against the abuse of women and children.

Steenkamp was killed by her boyfriend, Oscar Pistorius, on Valentine's Day of 2013. He claimed believed she was an intruder hiding in the bathroom

Kim Martin, CEO of the Reeva Steenkamp Foundation says the focus will be on educating and empowering women and children. This will be done through two projects - the Reeva pack and Reeva Girl. The Reeva pack, which is a guide on how women can protect themselves against domestic violence, is packed with all the necessary emergency numbers, and will be made available to women for free.

Reeava girl is a bursary scheme which will be awarded to a girl child studying Law, and specialising in Family Law, once a year.

We want the public out there to help us get these packs to as many women as possible.

Kim Martin, CEO of the Reeva Steenkamp Foundation

The foundation is looking for funding to help them get the course going, and especially making the packs available to women.
