STRONG WOMEN - meet Ellen Pakkies, the perfect example of a STRONG woman. Right here in Montagu.
Ellen Pakkies was known as a loving mother, a religious woman and an upstanding member of her community in Lavender Hill. But on a September morning in 2007, her entire life changed. She had to make an unimaginable decision, a choice only a mother in her circumstances can understand.
We celebrate strong women like Ellen this August and invite mothers, children, teenagers and all those struggling with realities such as drug and alcohol abuse in their families and communities to join 100 Women 1 Voice, RAM (Rescue Among Many) NPO and Ellen Pakkies on 7 August at the Civic Hall in Montagu.
The movie "The Ellen Pakkies Story" will also be flighted.
Look our for the September edition of the Langeberg & Montagu Mail for an in-depth interview with Ellen Pakkies and her story.
