Leilani Kuter - Shining the Spotlight on Survival

In September 2019, rape survivor and activist, Leilani Kuter (46) from Roodepoort, Gauteng, began a 27-day journey, covering a distance of 729km, to take a stand against sexual assault and gender-based violence in South Africa.

Wearing yellow, the colour her attacker wore, Leilani sought to break the stigma rape carries and raised over R250 000 on BackaBuddy to support and empower rape survivors throughout the country.

This year, on the 28th anniversary of the traumatic sexual assault that left her for dead and changed her life forever, Leilani once again tightesn her laces to shine a spotlight on survival.
