Ntombozuko Jafta started this petition to Eastern Cape Government Premier Oscar Mabuyane

Our cry for help to our government is an access to the rehabilitation treatment centre for our young people especially in the Nelson Mandela Bay in Uitenhage area and surroundings. We have a big crisis of young people who can't get help because there is only one government treatment centre in NMB. Our children are dying everyday due to substance abuse especially drugs. In our region we only have one treatment centre that caters below 18 years and what about the above 18 who can't get help they need. Children are dropping out of schools and parents are panicking flocking in our office.

Our cry to our government is them to identify an old school that will be renovated to be a treatment centre. As an NPO TWYST Foundation we are foot soldiers championing social cohesion from the grass roots level and we encounter difficulties everyday parents are crying for children everyday. 

We humbly ask our communities to stand  with us and fight this crisis because it affects us all. Homes are being wrecked due to this crisis. Drugs it's a pandemic on it's own young people are dying. The future of this country is under siege our hope in young people is fading everyday due to the lack of not having treatment centre.
