The Western Cape Department of Social
Development is focusing on strengthening families through the building of
partnerships with service providers in government and civil society.
This as Friday was the 20th
anniversary of International Day of Families as proclaimed by the United
Nations in 1994.
The day was created in response to changing
social and economic structures which have affected and still affect the structure
and stability of family units.
Ministerial Spokesperson Melany Kuhn said
our focus in terms of support to vulnerable families, runs through most of our
programmes right through the year.
Kuhn said most of the programmes that we
run are geared towards strengthening and supporting families in order to become
functioning structures within our communities.
