“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
- Jane Goodall
Initiative for a clean Paterson.
There is no waste collection in the small community in South Africa's Eastern Cape. Instead, garbage bags are burned or disposed of in illegal landfills where people or animals tear open the plastic bags. The wind blows their contents back into the neighborhood or into the surrounding nature.
In order to keep the population of stray dogs and cats from spreading uncontrollably in Paterson regular spay & neutering campaigns are essential. Just as important is a place where residents can receive medical treatment for their pets.
