ON November 17, the Methodist Church at Umvoti Circuit 815 hosted the Natal West District annual function observing Health/HIV Day at the Greytown town hall.

The day was celebrated through honouring Community Care Givers (CCG’s) from different areas under Umvoti Municipality.

Thirty caregivers from the departments of Health and Social Development were in attendance. The event was also attended by Ward Seven councillor Vukani Mahlase as well as a member of the war room.

The caregivers were given VIP treatment as guests of honour on the day, starting with the well-draped chairs that they occupied to the dining tables of honour prepared just for them. A banquet was what they enjoyed on the day and the Methodist Church of SA head office (Mission Dept) also blessed them with food parcels that could not be easily lifted from the floor.

The event was a joint effort by the Methodist Church (Enhlalakahle), district office, Greytown Hospital, and Old Mutual (Greytown).

The community learnt a lot from the dynamic speakers of the day, with topics from scripture, health, and financial advice.

Old Mutual also brought gifts for the caregivers and all the speakers.

The guest speaker was Zama Khumalo, who specialises in HIV ministry. She was true to the saying, “Dynamite comes in small packages”.

The Methodist Church’s message was simple: “Together a healing community”.
