HiHZim Chikomba District Donation
Hand in Hand Zimbabwe last week donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and disinfectants to frontline medical personnel at Bvumbura Clinic in, Ward 2 and Rutanhira Clinic in Ward 23 Chikomba district as part of efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19. Each clinic received a consignment consisting of 10 litres Hydrogen Peroxide, nine boxes of latex gloves, 300 surgical masks, 10-litre bucket, 5 litres liquid soap, 5 litres hand wash, a knapsack sprayer, hand spray bottle and 10 green bar soaps.
As part of efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19, HIH Zim, which is also at the forefront of raising Covid-19 awareness in rural and marginalised areas, took the opportunity to distribute 60 green bar soaps, brochures, flyers and posters to community members who were present at the two health centres.
Health workers at the two medical facilities could not hide their joy after receiving the life-saving equipment and clothing. “The donation will go a long way in assisting us to prevent the spread of Covid-19 as we are constantly exposed to various patients with different ailments from the community,” said a Nurse Aid at Rutanhira Clinic.
