Alfred Nzo District Municipality receives food parcel donation

Mthatha - The Executive Mayor of Alfred Nzo District Municipality, Cllr Sixolile Mehlomakhulu marked the Workers Day by receiving food parcels donated by Business Sector in a bid to provide relief to those mostly affected by effects of the COVID-19 lockdown.

These kind donations are answering a call made by Executive Mayor to Business sector to help the vulnerable and the needy, who are most affected by the lockdown.

These food parcels are then distributed to Local Municipalities, who are then charged with the responsibility of identifying these families and distribute the food to them.

"As we mark this May Day, we are humbled by the response we are getting from those who have heeded our call.

"Our District contains some of the most vulnerable people who otherwise won't be able to afford good nutrition during this Lockdown.

"Therefore we are pleased that the business sector is coming to the fore and helping us fight hunger as we fight the COVID-19 pandemic," Executive Mayor said.

The good samaritans were, the Matitele Business Chamber, led by Mr. Zolile Mosoeu and a Mbizana based Company Nik JV.

The Executive Mayor continues to urge the people of Alfred Nzo to comply with all the lockdown regulations.

People are urged to maintain good hygiene by always washing hands with water and soap, and to maintain the social distance between them at all times.

The virus has hit Alfred Nzo and is going to spread fast if we do not act responsibly to stop the spread.

For donations, interested people can contact their nearest disaster office, or contact Mr. Onke Diko on 0793613325.
