Hiv/Aids is one of the pandemics that has wrecked havoc within communities in South Africa. The pandemic has left many households headed by children.
“When we work together we can stop the spread of Hiv/Aids. The Hiv/Aids death rate is decreasing because of stakeholders that are here today educating and spreading the message about the disease”. These are words echoed by the Executive Mayor of CDM Cllr. Mamedupi Teffo.
