George Municipality Aids Day

Ald Melvin Naik, Executive Mayor of George, was the keynote speaker at the George Municipality Aids Day event on 3 December and called upon all to take full responsibility for their own health and wellness.
The event was held at the George Botanical Gardens.
Mayor Naik said all are gathered under the banner of the theme Cheko Impilo – Know your status “and intensify our support for those living with HIV.” He encouraged especially the youngsters to abstain from sex to keep safe.
“Those living with HIV cannot change their status, but we can change our attitude. Let us be their ambassadors and ensure that they live the lives they are capable of living,” Naik said.
Representatives from the George Local Aids Council, Police, Correctional Services, Faith Based Association, SANCA, Thutuzela, Ithemba Lobomi, Options, the Department of Health, Youth for Christ and learners from different schools were present at the event.
Cllr Sean Snyman, Portfolio Councillor for Community Development, said “Real men use condoms. Know your status and protect yourself and your partner.”
Young and old were entertained by games at the event and were given lunch packs. Different organisations had stalls up to do HIV testing.
The day were ended off with the signing of a pledge read by Choice Somagaca, chairperson of the George Local Aids Council. It reads: “I pledge to protect myself and get tested so that I will know my HIV status.”
