Creating Awareness Around World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

PADCA’s Community Services Team has been creating awareness around World Elder Abuse Awareness Day by engaging in a few community initiatives. The first was a collaboration with CANSA Pietermaritzburg in a Senior Citizens CANSA Walk and Awareness Day on 7th June 2023. PADCA’s Social Worker Mpume Xaba, addressed senior citizens on PADCA’s services and Abuse of the Elderly.

The second event was an Intergenerational Programme with TVET students’ participation. An awareness event focussing on the Abuse of the Elderly was held at Zondi Store with Lindokuhle Social Club on 9th June 2023.
