To mark International Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Awareness Day, which takes place on 9 September annually, the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) joined forces with the Foundation for Alcohol-Related Research (Farr) to raise awareness of the plight of those affected by alcohol misuse.

FARR supports communities and individuals affected by alcohol abuse and runs numerous programmes aimed at raising awareness of the dangers of alcohol­.

In support of Farr’s initiatives, the CTICC and its suppliers (decor specialists Sorrento and Farm Design, and information technology solutions company Jasco) donated teddy bears, baby blankets, backpacks, stationery and toiletries for distribution to various early childhood development crèches supported by Farr.

“These wonderful gifts will surely bring joy and happiness to many children. Over the past six years the CTICC has not only assisted us in raising awareness regarding the prevention of FASD, but has surely brought hope and pleasure to the recipients of the many donations that we have received to date,” says Leana Olivier, Farr CEO.
