The core purpose of the administration is to sustain common Bakwena Ba Mogopa culture and customs and create a prosperous community in which all its members have means to prosper, access job opportunities, learn and play in addition to those contained in Section 9 of the Act. The Office of Mmakgosi went on an all day visit to three different old age care facilities in Jericho and Bethanie as part of their social development initiative. A RE BATSHOLENG, IPELENG BAGODI and TLOTLANG MOILWA were identified as beneficiaries of food parcels and linen packs.
Tlotlang Moilwa which is managed by Mrs E. Motlhabane is a home for 26 elderly people while the other two cares for 30 and 15 respectively. The Office of Mmakgosi donated grocery hampers which included staple food, toiletry and linen which included bath towels, sheets and pillow cases. Some of the homes still lack in infrastructure and equipment but the caregivers go to source out funding and donations. ‘Care facilities aren’t just homes for the elderly but they are a refuge for many that need special care and attention. Alzheimer’s is a common threat amongst many of our elderly people and security and safety precautions are adhered to by the staff’, explained Mme Mabiletsa, a caregiver at Ipeleng Bagodi.
Mmakgosi emphasised that our parents gave us life; we are who we are today because of their efforts. These homes are indeed a necessity in this day and age even though death still comes to many of our parents. As a great reliever we should work together with other organisations to weave a web of love and compassion to shelter our dear parents who have shed their light of guidance and have been a refuge to most of us.
Special thanks go out to Mmabatho Palms and The Department of Social Development – Bojanala District.
