Health-promotion drive

UCT medical students had Tafelsig residents dancing in the streets during a health-promotion drive in the neighbourhood.

The residents heard from the students about the dangers of smoking and the importance of regular exercise.

The students’ visit on Tuesday November 3 was part of the “Healthy Body Mind and Soul Campaign” organised by Alpha and Omega Outreach, an NGO.

The students handed out information pamphlets and apples and showed the residents exercises they could do at home.

Outreach volunteers served a meal of samp, beans and chicken. For more information on how to stop smoking visit the student’s instagram page@stopsmokingtoday1 or facebook page Just Plain Fitness.
