THE BSU Youth Organisation held a drug awareness programme at Belvedere Community hall on Saturday, February 11.

Among the dignitaries who attended the function were eThekwini deputy mayor Fawzia Peer, Pastor Steven Naidoo, Tongaat SAPS and doctors.

Peer talked about the ways the youth can assist in growing their community.

Peer also emphasised the important role that the youth can play in the community.

Doctors advised the public on medical issues such as cancer and oral health. The doctors also provided free check ups.

The National Muslim Care Foundation kept the public interested by way of their visual drug awareness presentation.

The event progressed with enchanting dances by Thivani and Trisha Gounder, Gwala’s Farm and Umbhayi dance groups.

Concluding the programme was the distribution of meals provided by Food for Life SA and 64 needy families were provided with clothing packs and food.

BSU Youth Organisation chairperson Muzammil Razak said: “We would like to thank all those who sponsored refreshments, doctors for providing free check ups and all those who assisted to make the event a success.
“This was also the launch of the BSU Youth Organisation together with Awqaf SA and National Muslim Care Foundation.

A school drug awareness programme will commence soon.”
