The Sunday Independent tells the shocking story of the gang-rape of five months old Thandiwe and how it led her foster mother, Claudia Ford, to establish the Princess Trust.Ford explained that she had set up the trust in honour of Thandiwe's "courage and innocence, the ordeal she has endured and in condemnation of crime.

First on the list of trust beneficiaries are Women and Men Against Child Abuse and the Child Protection Unit.
