In addition, the Angel of Hope Foundation sourced hand sanitizers, medical gowns and masks, among other consumables from the Church of the Later Day Saints.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa commended the sacrifice and commitment shown by various organisations in partnering government to mitigate the pandemic.
“These are the donations we continue to receive from different organisations. We are grateful for the donations as they will go a long way in fighting this disease,” said President Emmerson Mnangagwa
Skylake Director, Mr Phillip Chaitezvi said water is very important in the fight against COVID-19, hence their decision to drill borehole.
“We are drilling two boreholes and we will place tanks to ensure there is running water. We encourage other corporates to continue helping our society during these difficult times,” said Skylakes Director Phillip Chaitezvi.
Government has managed to build strong relations with different stakeholders and it is during such difficult times that the importance of private-public partnership comes to the fore.
So far, Zimbabwe has recorded one death and 9 cases of COVID-19 since March this year.
However, globally more than 67 000 deaths have been recorded.
