The Khayalethu Care Unit organized an Awareness Campagne for the children from our Community Centres as well as children that the Outreach Team works with on the streets.
The South African Police Department gave a talk on substance abuse and the consequences of using drugs and how crime can affect their future. They also emphasized that the police are there to help and protect them and shouldn’t be their enemy. Whizzkidz talked about the services they do, and also spoke about abstinence and how to make the right choices.
Yandi and Makhosi also shared their testimonies. Yandi was a drug user and had lost hope in life but with the help of YFC, he was able to go to Siyakhula Rehabilitation and is now attending school. He motivated other young children not TO do drugs because they can turn your life upside down.
Makhosi shared her story about the difficulties of being a teen mother and how God has been good to her. She wanted to abort her child when she found out she was pregnant but was lead on the right track and found people that helped her through raising a child while being a teenager. She told the children that they should wait for the right partner and time to have children but even when it happens that there are people who can help.
The event was a great success where our beneficiaries were able to hear about life stories and how important it is for them to make the right choices.
