Intersex South Africa (ISSA) is dedicated to raising awareness of intersex issues in South Africa while advocating and supporting all intersexed South Africans. The organization was formed to act as a catalyst for information dissemination, awareness raising, and advocating for the rights of intersex people in South Africa. Unfortunately, in February 2014 Sally passed on, which led to the organization becoming dormant until 2017 when the organization was revived by South African activists. Their mission is to spread knowledge about intersex, to provide support for the intersex community, to ensure that intersex people have the right to full information and access to their own medical records and history combating discrimination on the grounds of intersex, to put an end to infanticide and killings of intersex people led by traditional and religious beliefs, to put an end to non-consensual sterilization of intersex people, to put an end to infanticide and killings of intersex people led by traditional and religious beliefs, to include intersex variations as healthy manifestations of bodily diversity in the foundational stages of education curricular
