The government continues to receive donations to fight and prevent the spread of cholera with more funds expected to go towards infrastructure development in areas affected by the epidemic.
A visit to Buhera a week ago by the Deputy Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr John Mangwiro exposed that there are some villages where over 90 homesteads have only four toilets with the situation compounded by lack of clean water, making society contribution to prevent the spread of the medieval disease a necessity.
As part of the gesture of national solidarity towards the fight against cholera, Moor’s World of Sport donated $10 000 for the control of the disease.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Child Care, Secretary for Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage, Mr Melusi Matshiya thanked Moor’s World of Sport for the support, while urging other members of the society to contribute towards the noble cause.
“We appreciate the kind gesture by Moor’s World of Sport to donate a sum of $10 000 towards the prevention of cholera. We urge other members of the society to continue assisting in that regard,” Mr Matshiya.
The country was recently in a bad spotlight with the cholera epidemic that affected many people, prompting the government and other supporting organisations to put in place measures to stop the further spread of the disease.
