Anti-drug block party

2015-10-29 13:51

A party with a different vibe, a drug awareness block party, will be hosted by the newly elected executive committee of Mabo Foundation, a Uitenhage based dependency support group.

It will be held next to the Rosedale Clinic on Sunday, starting at 14:00. Mabo Foundation is a non-government organisation that renders support and counselling at the Kamesh SAPS Centre.

Ganief “Mabo” Williams, CEO and founder of Mabo Foundation says, “the youth are looking for a credible message that they can identify with. The trying task of reducing the use of drugs and alcohol at schools is made all the more daunting as a result of the lack of credible and effective awareness drives and initiatives.”

Local artists will be showcasing their talents in singing, dancing, rapping and poetry at the block party. Those wishing to perform can contact Williams on 074 257 6155.
