The Bitou Local aids Council, Bitou support groups and the coordinator of the special programmes Ms Sylvia Mtshamba had planning meetings to organise the International Candle light day, held in Kwanokuthula Community Hall on the 19th May 2013. Cllr Ndayi handed food parcels to the needy families, 5 families form each support group were identified.
The event was well attended by community members, support groups etc. Rev Mathafeni played a big role by praying for all those passed away because of the HIV/AIDS stigma, also requested the crowd to think of anyone who passed away and never had a chance to ask for forgiveness just because he or she was neglected because of his or her status.
Ms Sylvia Mtshamba requested community members to join the support groups in their respective areas.Last published 30 March 2016
