The International Day of Persons with Disabilities on the 3rd of December has been declare as a day of commemorating and addressing issues of people with disabilities by the United Nations.
It is upon this reason that the WRDM Executive Mayor through the Disability desk joined the world to commemorate the day. A large number of people from Itireleng Disabled Centre in Mohlakeng benefitted from that initiative.
The trip to the selected venue (Buksies Pleasure Resort) occurred on the 5 of December 2014. The Coordinator of Disability Desk, Mr. Lungile Mdingi said: “the idea behind it is to have peaceful day with the beneficiaries far from their working environment.
The purpose of this event was to allow our people to mingle and reorienting them with the society.”
The event was a type of a picnic and it became a terrific success. People were involved in various activities such as swimming, dancing, playing soccer etc. They had a marvellous time and it will be a day to be remembered.
