Shammah Family Care Campaign

On Saturday, the 26th of August, Shammah Family Care hosted a campaign creating awareness of drug abuse, teenage pregnancy and general health for girls.

Shammah Family Care is a non-profitable organisation which was founded by S. Mnisi, S. Ngobese and N. Mbatha. During the event, members from this organisation visited the community members from Mafred and Mangosuthu to donate sanitary towels, toiletries and food parcels.

Guest speakers including Mr P. Mokoka, from MARC (Mkhondo Athalia Rehabilitation Centre) and Mr B. Nkabela, from Jindal Africa, addressed the people and provided them with information pertaining to the various subjects and how to eliminate these issues in the communities.

The event was a huge success and the members and governing body would like to thank their stakeholders and doctors Mavimbela, Nxumalo and Mansoor for their contribution. Thank you to Pick n Pay Family Store, Boxer and Mkhondo Local Municipality for their help, assistance and donations.

If you would like to get involved in this organisation or obtain more information on projects they are currently busy with, kindly contact Nondomiso Mbatha on 071 403 7939.
