  • Namibia:

    In Namibia, as in other countries, substance abuse is stealing the lives of the people who are using; but to add to that, it is stealing from our beautiful country, her sunrises, her sundowns and her tomorrows. I believe that this book will assist me to help the people who will cross my path. Thank you so much.

How has this helped you?
