Target areas: Squatter camps covered (Syferfontein, Moeggeploeg, Moeggehuur, Rosedale, Kloof street, Crotonslot)

During these sessions our main focus was to create a sense of responsibility amongst our community members regarding their own safety and their families. Vaccinations are everyone’s own choice but we should all do our part in acting responsibly and being safe. Vaccinations saves lives.

Children remains our focus point to educate them on making the right choices. Pointing out the dangers to them regarding smoking, alcohol abuse, bullying and the psychological impact it has on our youth.

We have a society who is crippled with the manner in which the youth in our communities have lost total control of who they are and their beliefs. It is our responsibility together with all role players and parents to bring forth the change we want to see in our children. I still believe in the phrase “my child is your child.”  Lets take back our streets, make them safe for our children and raise a generation who comes out stronger together.
