Mayor Peter Teixeira honours Midvaal grandmothers

MEYERTON - Midvaal’s Mayor, Peter Teixeira, has celebrated and honoured 50 elderly women from across the municipality. The women were treated to a leisurely boat cruise on the Vaal River on Tuesday, as part of the municipality’s Women’s Day celebrations. Teixeira says due to growing socio and economic challenges elderly women and grandmothers become the primary caregivers and extend support to raise their grandchildren. The mayor says grandmothers are the backbone of the community, raising us with very little resources and support while instilling strong principles and values. See more on this story here:
