Its Teenage Pregnancy awareness week! WMACA has dealt with several cases where victims are the children of very young mothers who are often left vulnerable to abuse and neglected as their young moms struggle to survive and or continue with their education.
In one of our cases a client in Grade 7 at a Primary School in the Verulam area gave birth to twins. WMACA on home visits to the young mom after the babies returned home found that she had locked them up while going out. The babies are now in the care of their maternal great grand mother
