Bazaar brings vital info to Perseverance residents


Learning more about reproductive health issues at a booth

The activity, held on Saturday afternoon, was a joint effort by Perseverance I and II together with the Drugs and Alcohol Council (Dac) to bring members of the community together as well as educate and promote different services local organisations had to offer.

Among different displays at the bazaar were information booths ranging from reproductive health to information on housing as well as drug use and prevention.

Also available on the day were a series of activities including talks and HIV testing.
This was followed by a musical show by local youths later that night.

Margaret Ernesta, a social worker present at the event, said the activity is a way to bring critical information to people’s doorsteps and to encourage members of the community to learn about the different services on offer to them.

Organisations that had set up their information booths included the Fire and Rescue services, Youth Health Centre, Seychelles Maritime Safety Administration, the local police, the Baha’i faith and the department of community development, to name a few.
