WCDM helps towns

Local municipalities have been making efforts to provide social aid during the national lockdown, and to support this initiative, the West Coast District Municipality (WCDM) is creating a central hub for food aid.

The municipality is setting up a central call centre and making more personnel available to tackle the backlog of applications for food parcels.

It is assisting Social Development with assessment and verification of individuals and households that have applied for food parcels.

Vast distances on the West Coast also remain a big challenge.

To assist local municipalities with humanitarian relief projects, Executive Mayor of the West Coast Alderman Harold Cleophas agreed to his municipality transporting food parcels to the Matzikama and Cederberg municipal areas.

The travelling distance to the furthest drop-off point is more than 200 km.

In the Swartland municipal area 72 feeding schemes continue to provide meals to the vulnerable.

Aside from social aid, the municipality is also continuing to ensure a more hygienic environment. The WCDM Fire Services will continue with the sanitising of public spaces.

Twenty-six spaza shops were recently sanitised in Darling while the disinfection of reception areas of local police stations continues across the district.
