MEDIA INVITE: ADM TO OBSERVE MANDELA DAY IN AMAHLATHI LM'S NGCAMNGENI AND NGQEQE COMMUNITIES
AMATHOLE HEADQUARTERS, 15 JULY 2019
On a yearly basis, the month of July in South Africa commemorates the Mandela Month whilst also celebrating his birthday on the 18th by spending the day towards the upliftment of the vulnerable individuals and communities. As per norm, Amathole District Municipality [ADM] will be joining the rest of the country in heeding the call to play its part in celebrating Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy to change the world for the better.
In commemorating his 101 years, ADM will roll out two activities for the benefit of Ngcamngeni, Ngqeqe and Phalintloko communities.
As a water and sanitation service focused institution, ADM will ensure that construction of disabled-oriented ablution facilities for the benefit of eight elderly community members is the order of the day in Ngqeqe & Phalintloko Villages, both in ward 11.
At Ngcamngeni Village in Debe Nek’s ward 10, ADM will be visiting a centre catering for a maximum of 70 elderly in the area. Whilst 32 are daily visitors to the centre, 17 are bedridden and 21 are housebound. ADM will assist with their current challenges with the goal of ensuring that the centre operates to its maximum.
The media is invited to attend and cover the event.
