South Africans Against Drunk Driving

Featured project

South Africans Against Drunk Driving creates awareness of the Drinking then Driving/walking problem in South Africa. 18 000 people die on South African roads every year - at huge cost to families and to the economy. As an organization we not only provide counselling for affected families, we also assist with the legal processes that can be confusing and time consuming. SADD works in schools and in Universities. We offer breathalyzer training, and act as a media resource via our website.

Project Examples

Victim Support At Court Cases

SADD offers support to victims attending court cases where loved ones have been killed or injured in alcohol-related crashes.

The support extends to providing information to use in court, as well as to giving advice and assistance during these challenging times
