Municipality and Red Cross join hands

The Dawid Kruiper municipality recently joined hands with the South African Red Cross in hosting a health awareness day event.

The event took place at the Upington taxi rank and was attended by various other government departments and the community.

Speaking on behalf of the Executive Mayor at the event, Councillor Lebitsa from ward 13 said that health issues are everybody’s business. ‘We as the local government depend on the local citizens for economic development. If they are not healthy they will not be able to provide good services to the public’. he said.

The red cross opened its Northern Cape Provincial office in Upington.

The aim of red cross in Upington is the following:

• To render humanitarian services

• To prevent and alleviate human suffering

• To promote primary healthcare services

• To promote positive human relationships

• To promote community empowerment through ICT and skills development

The event served to foster closer ties between the Dawid Kruiper municipality and the red cross.
