Mayor Dan Plato wishes all Muslims a blessed Eid-ul-Adha<p>‚ÄčAs the Mayor of Cape Town, on behalf of the City, I would like to extend my best wishes to the Muslim community. </p><p>The global COVID-19 pandemic has required us to shift the way we respond to our fellow residents, tested our resolve, required us to demonstrate kindness and courage, and expanded our need to remain hopeful. </p><p>The theme that underlines Eid-ul-Adha is sacrifice and is relevant to us during Covid-19.</p><p>It is a sacrifice to adapt our way of life to the national regulations to wear a mask; to avoid group activities which may put others at risk of contracting Covid-19. It is a sacrifice to not be in the physical presence of your loved ones to protect their health.</p><p>I wish to applaud all residents for their sacrifices and opening their hearts, and choosing generosity and courage through assisting the City of Cape Town in reaching out to communities with humanitarian relief.</p><p>My hope is for this spirit of sharing with the less fortunate to continue.</p><p>We reiterate our call for residents over the age of 35 to come forward to register for the Covid-19 vaccine so we may move closer to seeing the end of this pandemic and work as #OneCityTogether¬† to rebuild our economy and our lives.</p><p>Eid Mubarak!</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2021-07-20T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#1b05f64b-82b6-48ff-9032-784fac58cf97;L0|#01b05f64b-82b6-48ff-9032-784fac58cf97|executive mayor;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb10
