Nyanga elderly pampered and educated at Muizenberg Civil Hall

At least 100 senior citizens from Ward 37 in Nyanga had the opportunity to breathe fresh air with the smell of the ocean when they went on an outing to Muizenberg Civil Hall.

The “capacity building” outing took place on Thursday 18 May and was organised as part of the ward allocation budget for the ward. It was designed to capacitate and educate senior citizens about their rights and health.

Different departments that attended the occasion such as the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) and the City’s Department of Social Development, Sub-council 13 delegates and a representative from one of the leading banks in the country.

Councillor Sandile Martin said they felt the need to take them out so that they may be empowered and also ease them of their stress.
