A Midvaal Disability Forum event was held at the Lakeside Community Hall on 25 August 2018. The event was organised by the Ward 6 Disability Sector, as well as Ward Councillor Johannes Mabaso and Speaker Cllr Freddie Peters, with the intention of showing Midvaal’s support for the disabled community. The main message for the day was that the disabled community is not alone in their struggles and that they are considered valuable members of the community. There are support systems in place to assist those with special needs. The meeting was very interactive - participants shared their stories and experiences, before enjoying a hot lunch.
