The Glendale Church hosted a special event last weekend featuring Nelson Mandela’s stepdaughter with the goal of encouraging awareness and advocacy of victims of gender abuse.
Josina Machel, Mandela’s stepdaughter spoke on the role of the faith community in influencing change and as a sanctuary for those who are hurting.
Machel was honored at a gala event with “The Game Changers Award” from the Indianapolis-based ministry, Saving Orphans Through Healthcare and Outreach (SOHO). Glendale Church member, Cynthia Prime, is SOHO’s CEO.
Both the local ABC affiliate, RTV6, and the local PBS station, WFYI, conducted interviews with Machel. Stories can be viewed here:
