Various government departments made their services available at the McGregor Church Hall on 27 June 2014, as part of theThusong Mobile Centre Project.
The day was well attended by 330 community members of McGregor. Transport from the rural areas to the venue was provided to allow access to government services such as information on SASSA allowance, housing, health tests, ID applications and much more.
Residents usually had to travel long distances to access these services, but thanks to the Thusong Mobile Centre’s Project initiated by the Western Cape Department of Local Government, government information and services was brought to the people of McGregor. The project saves residents time and money getting everything they need in one day at one location, adding value to the lives of the poor.
