  cn_rh_pinkdrive-tSometimes I wonder whether we’re doing the government’s work, which can be a bit of an annoyance – but we cannot simply sit back and not do it because it’s not happening in the public sector, because women have no access to the kind of bare minimum treatment and protection that they require.

If you’re in a predicament, or need to get help for a water, electricity, fire or medical emergency, then don’t bother dialling the numbers listed in the blue pages section of the current Boland and West Coast Telkom directory – for Faure, Firgrove, Gordon’s Bay, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Somerset West and Strand – because none of them are in service.

Instead, turn to the inside cover of the Yellow Pages section of that directory, where you will find a complete list of emergency contact numbers for the City of Cape Town which are in service.
