Government is working round the clock to improve the standards of living for its workforce, with civil servants in the Midlands province receiving a consignment of goods over and above their salaries.

Launched in Gweru and taken to all corners of the province, the programme is expected to play a crucial role in improving welfare and day-to-day operations.

“We are very grateful to the government and President Mnangagwa for initiating this programme because it has come at the right time when we were faced with a lot of challenges, this is commendable,” said one of the civil servants.

Another said, “This will help to cushion the children we have at our institution. As you know the season is not well due to climate change but with this programme, we are home and dry.”

The government pledged to continue supporting institutions as part of its mission to offer developmental assistance.

“We appreciate working with you, and we assure you that as a government, we will try our best to give support whenever it is needed. I also want to assure you that the Midlands Province will pursue the guidance of His Excellency, the President, to promote food and nutrition and eliminate poverty,” said Midlands Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Honourable Owen Ncube.

Honourable Owen Ncube is spearheading the charity initiative and has taken the programme to other parts of the province, including Kwekwe and Gokwe districts.
