More than 80 widows and the elderly have benefited from blankets donated to them by the local Councillor in Seke Unit N, Chitungwiza

Ward 23 Councillor Cde Betty Jason remembered the widows and the elderly at such a time when the winter season is at its peak.

Widows who spoke to ZBC News during the handover ceremony could not hide their joy as they said this will go a long way in protecting them from the harsh winter season.

Cde Jason said she had decided to assist the vulnerable especially the elderly and widows who face many challenges in the community including poverty.

“This initiative is aimed at improving the lives of the people in the area who sometimes are neglected by their family members,” she said.

The councillor has also opened a massage centre for persons with physical challenges in the area.
