GUTU – Vanobva kwaMunyikwa Development Trust (VAMDET) has donated sunscreen lotion, shoes, computers and exercise books to children living with albinism at four schools under Chief Munyikwa in Gutu.
The donations were made on Friday last week at Muchekeyaora, Mushangwe Primary schools, and Muchekayaora and Mutambwi Secondary schools.
VAMDET Founder Watson Chatiza confirmed the development to The Mirror and said the donations came from several well-wishers. 
“We are happy that we are fulfilling what we have promised the Munyikwa community. On Friday, we donated an assortment of goods to children living with albinism at four different schools,” said Chatiza.

Chatiza further said they handed over a desktop computer and three sunscreen lotions. Two pairs of school shoes, 10×2 exercise books, two sun hats and two mathematical sets at Mutambwi Secondary School in Ward 16 in Gutu East. They also donated mealie meal, soya chunks and rice to visually impaired Rambisai Chizodo of the same ward. 
Muchekayaora Secondary School in Ward 15 received a desktop computer, five sunscreen lotions, seven pairs of school shoes, 10 x7 exercise books, seven sun hats and seven mathematical sets. 

The group then proceeded to Muchekayaora Primary School, where they donated 20 x 4.2m (IBR) roofing sheets. 
Chatiza said VAMDET is appealing to all former students and well-wishers to donate more roofing sheets at the school. The school needs at least 72 sheets. Muchekayaora needs 17 asbestos to fix rooftops destroyed by heavy winds.
At Mushangwe Primary in Ward 15, they donated two sunscreen lotions, 10 x 2 exercise books, a pair of shoes, a mathematical set, a sunhat and 10 Ballpoint Pens to a student living with albinism. Chivhuro Village head Shingai Chivhuro applauded Vamdet for the gesture.

“We are grateful to Vamdet as it assists us in helping people living with albinism in our community and developing Schools. They have also donated books at several schools,” said Chivhuro.
Chatiza appreciated all their partners for donating and making the day success. He went on to say he looks forward to more positive cooperation in future.
“VAMDET sourced the donations from Leonard Mukumba of InterAfrica Buses, Phillip Archenoul in conjunction with Trevor Bell of Africa Steel Zimbabwe, Hashmook Naran of Tika Shoes and Sahara Chartered Accountants. They are our development partners, and are helping by uplifting lives in our community,” said Chatiza. https://masvingomirror.com
