Zvishavane District Civil Protection Department has received another consignment of Cyclone Idai relief aid sourced by Green Building Council, a registered climate change organisation aimed at mitigating the devastating effects of climate change.

The devastating Cyclone Idai which affected Manicaland province were a result of climate change.

Green Building Council and a group of companies in the great dyke have launched an awareness campaign to mobilise resources to assist Cyclone Idai survivors.

The registered climate change council handed a third donation to the District Civil Protection Department.

The council’s secretary general Memory Mugova said they launched a responsive campaign which saw people around the Great Dyke extending a hand to the cyclone-affected families.

 “As an organisation tasked with mitigating the effects of climate change, we launched a vigorous campaign to gather donations we are handing today to the CPD,” said Mugova.

The donations which include clothing, food items and money, were sourced from the local community and the business community also chipped in.

Guest speaker at the handover ceremony, Mimosa General Manager Mr Alex Mushonhiwa, challenged locals to continue donating food to the affected families as their donations may assist the affected in a long way.

 “The donations should continue being mobilised as the affected families are in need of them,” said Mr Mushonhiwa.

Chairperson of the Zvishavane Civil Protection Department Mr Rodwell Mtetwa who is also the District Administrator expressed gratitude for the third consignment of donations.

The cyclone donations will be transported to the provincial offices this Friday en-route to Manicaland.
