The Leonard Cheshire Disability Zimbabwe has sourced two top of the range Toyota Hilux double cabs and donated them to St Patrick’s Mission Hospital in Hwange and Zimcare Trust.

The handover ceremony took place today in the capital.

Handing over the two vehicles, Mr Greaterman Chivandire said his organisation is grateful to the generous support it gets from donors like Liliane Fonds as their gestures help them on their mandate to facilitate equalisation of opportunities for children and youths living with disabilities.

“We endeavour to see people living with disabilities improve their quality of life and this donation will greatly help in the removal of barriers which hinder them,” he said.

Zimcare Trust one of the beneficiary said, the donation is priceless as it will enhance its operational activities especially on outreach programmes.

“This donation will go a long way in bringing efficiency in our operations and we want to thank Leonard Cheshire for remembering us,” said Zimcare Trust Country Director Mr Nicholas Aribino.

Another beneficiary St Patrick’s Mission Hospital of Matabeleland North Province said the donation has come at an opportune time as they are currently promoting a culture of disability inclusion.

“Our community development projects will greatly benefit from this donation,” Sister Rumbidzai Maverutse a representative of St Patrick’s Mission Hospital.

This kind of initiative compliments government efforts in the provision of education, health, justice, livelihoods and rights awareness for people living with disabilities.
