HARARE – Glenview Polyclinic has received a major boost following a donation from a church that has been supporting the clinic for the past 32 years.
Sungano Yevapostori Faith Church donated baby clothes and hampers for expecting mothers worth over ZW$30 000, with the First Lady, Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa also chipping in with hampers.
Amai Mnangagwa commended the apostolic sect which has been assisting the clinic since 1987.
“Since 1987 you have been working here. Helping with cases of baby dumping. Bishop, I am glad that you prayed to God that he may provide enough to cater for the kids here,” said the First Lady.
Sungano Yevapostori Faith Church leader, Bishop Musafare Shayamano lauded the First Lady’s philanthropic work.
“We asked her to come at this occasion because we have seen her helping hand. She has gone up to Binga donating for those in need. As you have seen here today she has donated,” said Bishop Shayamano.
The event was also attended by Zanu PF Politburo Secretary For Health, Cde Cleveria Chizema and MDC Glenview South ward 31 Councillor Tonderai Chakeredza who praised the First Lady for her efforts in the development of the health sector.
“This is not about politics but about development. She is a mother for all,” said Councillor Chakeredza.
The donation will come in handy at Glenview Polyclinic’ maternity ward which also caters for abandoned babies and records an average of 200 births per month.
