Truter shows FAITH

Published:  23 July, 2008

Beyers Truter, the owner and winemaker of South Africa's Beyerskloof winery, has lent his name and support to a new initiative that aims to tackle one of the Cape's most serious issues - alcohol abuse during pregnancy.

The Beyers Truter Foetal Alcoholism and Interrelated Treatment Help Fund (FAITH) was launched on 7 October at the Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Conference in South Africa. It aims to tackle the problem of alcohol abuse by raising awareness and funds to tackle related problems.

Truter commented: We aim to instil faith in a better future for all by changing the lives of children, families and communities adversely affected by the abuse of alcohol.'
