MASVINGO – Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR) has donated a consignment of personal protective equipment (PPE’s), drugs, medicines and sundries to Rujeko Isolation Centre.
The consignment which is worth thousands was handed over by ZADHR executive director Calvin Fambirai to District Development Coordinator (DDC) Roy Hove who stood in for the Provincial Development Coordinator
(PDC) at a ceremony held at Benjamin Burombo building today.
The donation was taken to Rujeko Isolation Centre after the ceremony. Hove was accompanied by Tapera Saravoye who represented the Provincial Medical Director, District Medical Officer Dr Tinashe Muswe, Masvingo City Council acting health services director Ngonidzashe Mapamula and staff from Rujeko isolation centre.
The PPE’s are 900 nas masks, 700 surgical face masks, 640 gowns, 20 surgical boots, 200 goggles, 900 head caps, 70 boxes x 100 latex gloves; sundries are 20 brooms, 102 units of liquid soap, 20 buckets and 20 mops.
Fambirai said they choose to donate in Masvingo because it is being overlooked by other donors. He said his organisation has donated in Gweru, Bulawayo and Mutare.
“ZDHRA was formed in 2002 to advance the right to health for all. We chose to donate here because most donors overlooked the province.
We are engaging Government, councils and communities over the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Our main thrust with these donations is to assist frontline health workers battling against Covid-19,” said Fambirai.
Mapamula applauded ZADHR and said their donation is timely as Rujeko is the only functioning centre for the novel Covid-19. https://masvingomirror.com
