20 000 Western Cape Kids in Foster Care

Cape Town Child Welfare says that about 20 000 children in the Western Cape are in foster care because of abuse, neglect and their parents' drug use.

The organisation’s chief executive officer, Niresh Ramklass, has been quoted by the Cape Times as saying that poverty is not helping the already bleak situation.

Ramklass further says that, "It is quite stark. It would be best if children were not taken from their homes, but if we don't have a proper social net to protect our children, they will be lost. Many of them will die."

NGO Urges South Africans to Give Up Alcohol

A local NGO, South Africans Against Drunk Driving (SADD), is calling on South Africans to give up alcohol for the month of February.

Founded by social worker, Caro Smit, SADD initiated the AlcoFreeFeb campaign which aims to raise money to develop and distribute alcohol education materials to increase awareness about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

In the same vein, Philippa Smit, a SADD alcohol and drug educator, points out that, “Every year people are still driving drunk and we need to bring down the damage caused.”
