Tru-Cape supports the Mudita Foundation

 

Children are at the greatest risk in our society so any organisation that supports children and young adults with education and counselling around avoiding substance abuse must be applauded. Chief Administrator and Fundraiser, Renay February says that the Mudita Foundation has been caring for children since 2010 and is dedicated to providing high quality mental-health care and substance abuse services to children aged 13 and above.

“We operate in Stellenbosch, Eerste River, Kraaifontein, Somerset West and Macassar with specialised knowledge and training about youth substance abuse”, she says adding that services are free of charge to learners in their service areas and that they make use of professional services from social workers, psychologists and other registered health-care professionals.

“Our programmes include prevention and awareness offering proper education about abuse along with training services for teachers and other educators who are most often the front line in early intervention and referral.” February explains.

The Mudita Foundation believes that all South Africans, including children and teenagers, should have access to sound substance abuse programmes.

Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing, the largest exporter of South African apples and pears into more than 104 countries around the world, sponsored apples for two events: a picnic event last year at Jan S Marais Park in Stellenbosch on 24 November 2018 and for the May 5 Fun Run in Pniel at Boschendal Wine Estate. “All of these fundraising events are held for the programmes we render to assist the service areas and adolescents we service.” February ends.

Conrad Fick, Tru-Cape’s Marketing Director says the company’s communications focus is to foster a healthy lifestyle based on eating more fresh fruit and vegetables and being physically active. “Tru-Cape was pleased to partner with the Mudita Foundation in support of their efforts to reach the hearts and minds of young people in the hope they can avoid the social pressures around substance abuse in favour of eating a healthy diet and being active in community events such as Fun Runs and picnics.”
