The Zion Christion Church (ZCC) on April 21 donated 30 tonnes of foodstuffs to
the Masvingo Provincial Covid-19 Taskforce as part of efforts to help fight the
spread of coronavirus, TellZim can report.
The donation was made
through the Rugare Community Relief Services (RUCORS) which is the church’s
charity services arm, and was received by The Minister of State for Masvingo
Provincial Affairs, Ezra Chadzamira, who is also chairperson of the taskforce.
It was received in the
presence of many dignitaries including Covid-19 National Taskforce member
Lovemore Matuke, who is also the deputy minister of Public Service, Labour and
Social Welfare.
Much of the food will
be used to complement government’s social welfare food distribution which is
targeted at the most vulnerable people.
In the event of people testing
positive for coronavirus and being placed into mandatory quarantine, some of
the food items will be used to feed them.
Speaking at the
handover at Benjamin Burombo government offices where the donation was
unveiled, Chadzamira thanked ZCC Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi whom he said had
demonstrated time and again his concern for community wellbeing.
“I must thank the
Bishop for working hard to make a difference at this trying time when we are
fighting the coronavirus pandemic. I am particularly glad that this is not the
first time that RUCORS has extended a helping hand in the time of need as they
were very active in mobilising resources for people affected by Cyclone Idai
last year,” said Chadzamira.
At the same occasion,
two ambulances donated by Matuke towards the same cause were also unveiled.
The ambulances are
fitted with ventilators, oxygen supply systems and other critical medical
equipment.
Matuke, who is the director
of Transcare Medical Centre, said his donation was a response to President
Emmerson Mnangagwa for the business community to play a bigger role in the
fight against the pandemic.
