The MMC for Health and Social Development, Cllr Charlotte Zitha, together with the health department officials presented 19 gift hampers at different health facilities to welcome the newest citizens of the city on New Year’s Day, 1 January 2022.

Congratulating the mothers on the arrival of their newborns, MMC Zitha emphasised the importance of caregivers adhering to the Road to Health Chart (RTHC).

“The RTHC is very important in ensuring caregivers raise healthy babies. The booklet has important schedules that guide guardians on when to take their children for immunisation which is important to help your child become immune (protected) from diseases,” said MMC Zitha.

Helena Rieger was the first mother to give birth to a baby boy at Bertha Gxowa Hospital in Germiston on Saturday, 1 January 2022. Speaking about the visit by MMC for health and health officials she said, “I am really overjoyed. The birth of my son is the best New Year’s Day gift, and the visit by the City of Ekurhuleni is just a cherry on top.”
