Guest speakers including Mr P. Mokoka, from MARC (Mkhondo Athalia Rehabilitation Centre) and Mr B. Nkabela, from Jindal Africa, addressed the people and provided them with information pertaining to the various subjects and how to eliminate these issues in the communities.

The event was a huge success and the members and governing body would like to thank their stakeholders and doctors Mavimbela, Nxumalo and Mansoor for their contribution. Thank you to Pick n Pay Family Store, Boxer and Mkhondo Local Municipality for their help, assistance and donations.
