Raise the bra!

The popular Raise The Bra campaign for underprivileged women is back and now is the time to donate your previous loved bras.

Spearheaded by celebrity plastic surgeon Dr Deon Weyers, Raise The Bra is an annual initiative benefiting high school learners and older women around South Africa.

Every year the undergarments are collected at Dr Deon’s practice at Life Hospital, Fourways, and then distributed by the team from the ZABRA – AfreeBra initiative. ZABRA is an international volunteer network working with organizations looking after women in their care, who can benefit from receiving bras free of charge.

• Cure Day Hospitals Erasmuskloof

• Cure Day Hospital Medkin (PTA)

• Cure Day Hospital Paarl
