Prevention & Awareness

Lucia has been very involved lately with other charities, such as the Save the Children Fund. Also, in conjunction with the Ethekwini Municipality and SAPS, interacting with staff and children from Primary, Secondary and High Schools in the area. She has been giving Prevention and Awareness talks at these schools with a view to helping them to understand that the old adage -"Prevention is better than cure" - is worth remembering , especially when it comes to glue-sniffing, drug-taking and associating with gangs. By promoting awareness we aim to keep children away from these bad habits, get them off the streets and give them a chance to manage their young lives properly. Lucia has also been chatting to young mothers at local clinics, helping them to better understand the importance of birth control.
