THE MEC for Health in the Northern Cape, Lebogang Motlhaping, is looking at the effect of healthcare services on the community and at how destitute families can be assisted through social relief.

He visited Kagung on Monday, 29 August.

Mothlaping embarked on this visit as part of activities in celebration of Women’s Month.

This visit also highlighted the partnership of the Department of Health and Sishen Mine. The mine handed over 11 mobile health units to the department that are to be used at Kagung, Gasese, Madibeng and Maphiniki.

The minister was accompanied on this visit by Ga-Segonyana Municipal Mayor Neo Masegela, Local Municipal Speaker Tuelo Mayers, the local councillors and the House of Traditional leaders, led by Kgosi Jantjie, as well as representatives of Anglo American Kumba Iron Ore Sishen Mine, Sydney Ntili and Oduetse Kolberg.

Ten households were also identified during the visit as being in need of social relief, as their living conditions were such that some kind of intervention by the authotrities was required.

Lebogang Majaha, the media liaison officer of the Departement of Health, confirmed that blankets, food parcels, wheelbarrows, hosepipes and spades were donated to the families during the visit.

Majaha told ExpressNorthern Cape that the smiles of appreciation and gratitude of the families was a true reflection of the saying: “It is not happy people that are thankful, but thankful people that are happy.”
