Zimbabwe Council of Churches’ (ZCC) Humanitarian and Development Services arm has distributed food, sanitary wear, and done COVID 19 awareness campaigns in Ward 4 of Bubi District, Matabeleland North supported by the Canadian Embassy in Zimbabwe.
This initiative comes at a time when the country’s economy is in turmoil and exacerbated by the restrictions that came with measures to contain COVID 19.
In a tweet last week, ZCC published that they carried out humanitarian services through their Humanitarian and Development Services arm, supported by the Canadian Embassy in Zimbabwe.
“The Humanitarian & Development Services arm of the ZCC conducted food distribution, sanitary wear distribution and COVID-19 awareness campaigns in Ward 4 of the Bubi District in Matebeleland North. This initiative is being supported by the Canadian Embassy in Zimbabwe.”
The organisation says it is aiming at curtailing effects of COVID-19 pandemic in selected provinces, including Bubi District in Matabeleland North.
“’Consolidation of the ZCC Ecumenical Response to COVID-19 for prevention of spread of COVID-19 and improved access to health services in rural and remote communities.’ Has the aim of mitigating/reducing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in selected provinces.”
The thread further revealed that food was distributed to 220 individuals, and 50 women received sanitary wear.
“The COVID-19 awareness campaigns will partner with the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare and will run till February 2021.”
