Yesterday we were joined at the center by M’lop Tapang’s outreach team to do a drug awareness session with the children. Sadly here substance abuse can be a real problem, especially in children from poorer families. This often starts from the misuse of glue (which when inhaled can lead to feelings of numbness from loneliness, hunger and cold) and can progress into full blown addictions.

We went through reasons people might start trying drugs and what problems this may then lead to in life. We also went through other options for people finding themselves in situations where they might feel the need to try drugs, as well as what to do if they suspected a friend or family member may be using.

It was very valuable for the children to listen to and they seamed to take a lot from it. Thank you M’lop Tapang!
