MAGWEGWE Youth Centre will hold a sports health and ubuntu day in partnership with the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Recreation on 15 November at Marisha Grounds in Old Magwegwe.
In a bid to promote community development, the event will provide not only sports and health services, but it will also offer indigenous games, music and dance groups, drum majorettes, horse riding, jumping castle and trampoline, among others.
Focal person for Ward 18 Sports Committee Gift Marimira said their catchment area for the event included wards 18 & 29 (Magwegwe cluster) Under the Community Sport and Recreation Development Programme (CSRDP).
“We are kindly inviting organisations to participate at this high-volume event which will have multi-health service providers who will be offering free services on the day.
“The programme which started on 13 November with a massive clean-up awareness campaign is mainly targeted at the youths in the community as they are the most active and affected beings in as far as sexual relations and transmissions are concerned,” said Marimira.
He also said they were requesting the corporate sector and the community at large to give whatever support they could for the success of the event as it was staged by a non-profit making organisation.
Apart from games that will be played during the gala, health services such as HIV/Aids testing and counselling, cancer and TB Screening, family planning methods, STIs and blood tests, will be offered for free.
