Chimbindi clinic commissioned

Story by Tafara Chikumira

THE Second Republic has achieved yet another milestone after the commissioning of Chimbindi Clinic in Chirumanzu which was constructed using devolution funds.

The clinic, which has modern facilities will service more than 2 000 people, with some expected to come from as far as Shurugwi District.

“We used to climb those mountains to access the nearest health facility. The distances we used to cover were just too much and the completion of this clinic is quite a blessing. A lot of lives that could be served were lost as a result of lack of healthcare facilities nearby,” noted a relieved community member.

“We are very happy with the progress being spearheaded by the Second Republic. Today we are celebrating the existence of this clinic which will see us getting medication at our doorsteps. We are very happy as a community,” another community member noted.

Another weighed in, “We used to walk some long distances to reach the nearest clinic over there. Some people here have no access to scotch carts and any mode of transportation for that matter making our lives very difficult.”

The government has promised to continue coming up with life-changing programmes under the mantra of leaving no one and no place behind.

“We are here celebrating yet another milestone by the Second Republic. Brick upon brick we are doing it. We need a healthy nation for any form of development to take place. The health of communities is at the centre of the Second Republic’s agenda,” said Midlands Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Senator Larry Mavima.

“Today we are celebrating this development we managed as a team. We still have some issues to deal with. I know for us to be properly functional, we need an ambulance. As your legislator, I can assure you that I will be running around to ensure that we source the utility vehicle at the earliest convenience,” noted Chirumanzu South legislator, Honourable Barbra Rwodzi.

Chimbindi Clinic is the third such facility to be constructed in Chirumanzu using devolution funds as the Second Republic continues to uplift livelihoods in rural communities.
