Save the Children South Africa has emphasised the need for prevention programmes that focuses on protecting children’s childhoods.
Save the Children South Africa CEO, Gugu Ndebele this week expressed a need to end violence against children and called for greater investment in prevention programmes.
Save the Children South Africa sends its deepest condolences to the family of Rikson Mongwe who was stabbed to death while playing with friends in Soweto earlier this week.
Every year in South Africa 50, 000 children under the age of 5 do not survive. The high rates of inequality and poverty in South Africa greatly affect children’s survival and life chances. The campaign slogan “Growing up is hard enough. It shouldn’t be a race for Survival.” resonates with all of us.
