The Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation at it again!
In its quest to "lend a helping hand for a stronger community", the Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation made yet another major donation on Monday 28th November to CARE (Campaign for Awareness, Resilience and Education against substance abuse). On behalf of the Foundation, Mr. Cyril Bonnelame was on hand to present a cheque for SR35, 000.00 to Mr. Robert Ah-Weng, Director of CARE, outside the CARE office in Victoria. The funds will be used to produce customer education material, such as stickers, posters and leaflets, in support of a "Know More About Heroin" campaign, which will help sensitize the public on the super addictive nature of this drug and the dangers posed to a person's health and social life. These education materials will be distributed across the country in schools, clinics, District Administration Offices and other venues with the aim of contributing towards the Information, Education and Communication (I.E.C) efforts of trying to influence a change in behaviour and also curbing the rapid consumption pattern of heroin. Mr. Cyril Bonnelame, Deputy CEO said: "Cable & Wireless, through its Foundation, fully supports the efforts of CARE in educating the public of heroin, a potentially detrimental drug that has crept into our small society. We hope that the messages conveyed will, at the very least, save someone's life."
