MOEDING. Z Thousands of South Africans came together to celebrate Human Rights Day on 21 March under the theme, South Africa Unite against racism.

The Thusanang Advice Centre (TAC), a human rights non-profit organisation, visited the residents of Moeding on this day.

The gathering took place at the Pheta School Hall and joined the rest of the country in celebrations.

Botha Komako, the Thusanang project manager, informed the crowd about the significance of this day, hence the centre decided to celebrate with Moeding residents.

“We believe people must know their rights and make sure that no one undermines them, as happened at Sharpville in 1960,” said Komako

He said people had to stick together and fight racism in every corner.

“We are here to help you as an organisation that deals with human rights. Our offices are open to register cases against racism.

“We must unite as Africans to fight this racism,” said Komako.

Lucky Phadi, a community member, expressed his happiness and that of the community at large for the noble deed of the TAC in celebrating Human Right’s Day and the information given regarding the day.

“Some of us were not aware of these rights. We thank you very much,” said Phadi.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
