The government has commended corporates that continue to complement efforts being done to bringing normalcy to the Cyclone Idai affected areas.
This comes as a local fuel company has donated RTGS $100 000 towards rebuilding of Tonhodzai, Ndima, Hotsprings, Charles Wood and Gwindingwi schools in Chimanimani.
Handing over the donation, Zuva Chief Executive Officer ,Mr Bethwell Gumbo said it is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility to respond to misfortunes that befall communities.
“As part of our corporate social responsibility, Zuva does not care about the environment only but our top priority is to care for the people in the communities that we operate in,” said Mr Gumbo.
The Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, Cde July Moyo in his acceptance speech, urged more donors to assist in the restoration of schools destroyed by tropical Cyclone Idai in order to secure the future of the affected children.
“If we do not take care of this generation that has been affected, then the scars they got from Cyclone Idai will become a hindrance to development,” said Cde Moyo.
At least 104 schools were destroyed by Cyclone Idai and efforts are being made by the government, corporates and individuals to restore normalcy in the affected areas.
