Government brings services to the people

The Department of Local Government, in partnership with other provincial departments and the Overstrand Municipality, implemented an “Emergency Thusong Outreach” in the Zwelihle Township from yesterday (Wednesday 3 October) and today (Thursday 4 October)at the Zwelihle Community Hall.

The aim of this initiative, which takes place from 09:00 to 15:30 on both days, is to ensure citizens affected by the recent unrest get access to government services.

The Thusong Outreach aims to bring government services closer to the people, who have to travel long distances to obtain identity documents, birth certificates, to apply for pension, UIF or foster care grants and other government services.

The initiative is designed, especially, to benefit the community of Zwelihle township in applying for new documentation to replace those lost during the recent protests.

On the day, the following government departments, NGOs and other stakeholders assisted with the following services:

. Home Affairs: application for IDs and birth registrations

. Health: conduct health screening, HIV Counselling and Testing

. Sassa: assist with grants and pension applications

. Human Settlements: provide information on housing

. Agriculture: provide general information on farming support

. Social Development: assist with information on support services to families, child care and child protection

. IEC: information on voter’s registration and verification of registration details

. Road Accident Fund: assist with lodging of claims

. CCMA: assist with pamphlets on raining interventions

. National Youth Development Fund: assist with career guidance.
