e-tv news

One of etv's main news articles last night was about how shop keepers are selling puncture repair kits to street children (at R3 a kit). Youths are using the kits for glue sniffing purposes; according to the article they can get up to 5hits (or highs) per repair kit.

Glue is a highly dangerous inhalant that can paralyze a person or even cause sudden sniffing death. Glue sniffing has more harmful effects than heroine or cocaine.

We are appealing to you as shop owners, stockists and concerned members of the public to make a stand against the selling of these repair kits to street children. These children are our future. Lets encourage them to better themselves and not endanger their lives through abuse and addiction.
