THE Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society held their World Aids Day and 16 Days of Activism programme on 3 December at Mandela Square, outside municipal offices in Tongaat.

The aim of the programme was to make the community conscious about HIV and living a positive life.

The programme also aimed to promote the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign, and the community was given information on how to put an end to violence against women and children, and pamphlets and condoms were distributed.

Speakers from the Positive Living support group also shared messages about their experiences of being survivors of HIV and gave information on how to manage living with the disease.

Social work manager Jo Moodley urged the community members to get tested.

“Once you know your status, you can live a more positive life.”

Residents were asked to stand up and take action to prevent the abuse of women and children in their communities. - Supplied.
