De Doorns to receive crucial services
The Social Development Dept will be rolling out several vital services to the community of De Doorns.
CAPE TOWN - The Social Development Department will be rolling out several crucial services to the community of De Doorns in the Western Cape, Minister Bathabile Dlamini announced on Saturday.
Dlamini made the announcement during a visit to the town as part of her department's project 'Mikondzo'.
Last year, De Doorns was the epicenter of a violent wage hike strike by farmworkers.
The minister said the town was facing a number of problems such as teenage pregnancy, malnourished children and a high level of school drop-outs.
"A mobile ECD will be travelling throughout the area at least two days a week to ensure that our children have stimulative toys and books to help them develop."
