More than 1,500 senior citizens were treated to a Christmas lunch and received shopping vouchers to get them through the festive season by Walvis Bay Mayor Trevino Forbes.

Forbes also paid a visit to old-age homes in surrounding areas that were out of reach.

It was an atmosphere filled with music and decorations reflecting the Christmas season.

Walvis Bay Mayor Trevino Forbes stated that humanity requires one to reach out to others, particularly the vulnerable.

"Growing up with my grandfather and grandmother, it is very important for me to give back to our elderly people, and what we do today is that we give them entertainment, food, and a N$300 gift voucher."

For the elderly, Christmas is special because it brings families together so they can reminisce about the past.

They said the mayor's donation comes in handy.
