In the course of our co-operation with Cape Verdean Institut for children and youths (ICCA) a further educational meeting took place today. This time about drugs. Due to actual current causes the psychologist spoke about mainly cocaine and crack abuse and discussed with the youths. Two drugs which are also on the arrise in and their spread can in no way be prevented by the police. In the meantime Cape Verde is unfortunately well-known as place of transshipment of these drugs. On the stopover from South America to Europe obviously some remains in the country.
The psychologist of the ICCA reported with the help of a PowerPoint presentation about the effects and dangers of the drugs and the youth were constantly included. Many questions were asked and answered and we are sure that it was helpful and must be continued.
That there were also some children who are not yet so really in the risk of sinking into the world of drugs proves the last question which was that of a 13 year old who spoke in the end. He wanted to know why all the goods in a supermarket have an expiration date except for the liquor.
