In the last 5 years the trust has assisted various charities and causes and more than R 900 000 was donated back to the people of South Africa.  In 2002 Monique was asked to assist with addressing the high rates of child abuse and rape in South Africa and the trust developed Project Matla a Bana – A voice against child abuse.Monique Strydom is known as one of the 21 hostages who was held hostage by Abu Sayyaf rebels for 127 days in the jungle on the Philippineisland of Jolo in 2000.

Their group was in the hands of murderous terrorists, under continuous attack by the military, had to run for their lives through unforgiving territory, had very little food and water and were subject to many other dangers.  The fact that not one of the hostages was killed is seen as a miracle.

For Monique, her experience on Jolo was an extraordinary, life-changing one.  Together with her husband, Callie, she made a decision to stay positive and draw lessons from her adversity.  On her return Monique decided to dedicate her life to the people of South Africa, to thank South Africans for their support and love and as a way of returning this kindness.  She closed down her own business and set up the Callie and Monique Charity Trust.  The Stardoms donated all the money they received with media interviews, appearances and their book, Shooting the Moon, to this trust.

Monique has been the sole driving force behind this project, hosting many successful fund raising events in order to raise funds for this cause.  This project has already been implemented in various regions inSouth Africa.  Apart from running the Trust and Matla A Bana, Monique is now the presenter of her own TV inspirational programs, “Footprints” and “Monique” on national television.

Callie and Monique Strydom have received the love and respect, not only from the people of South Africa, but also from people like Nelson Mandela and President Thabo Mbeki.  They have also rubbed shoulders with the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Bill Clinton.  The Strydoms are the recipients of the numerous awards including the prestigious Newsmaker of the Year Award and the Rotrary International Paul Harris Award Callie and Monique are the proud parents of Luc who was born a year after their release.  They reside inJohannesburg,South Africa.

One outstanding feature of that episode that will remain in our memory is the way in which South Africans rallied around this couple.  Their story was followed with an intense interest and concern by the whole nation as if they were relatives of all of us.  It took this moment of personal suffering and danger to starkly remind us again that we are one people with a common destiny and common responsibility to care for and about each other.  The national mood of a common patriotism was vividly captured in the pictures of the Minister of Foreign Affairs chaperoning the couple back and the President officially receiving and welcoming them.We commend Callie and Monique Strydom for the courage they displayed under the most testing circumstances and wish them to know how proud they made all of us as South Africans for the manner in which they conducted themselves.

Monique and Callie we are happy to have you back amongst us, and let it go well with you. – Nelson Mandela Nov 2000
