Nyaradzo Funeral Assurance Company has deployed a team in Manicaland with equipment to accord relief and services to the survivors and ensure decent burials of the deceased.
The move by Nyaradzo follows unconfirmed reports that Cyclone Idai victims are being buried in tomato box caskets.
Nyaradzo Funeral Assurance Company released a statement on Wednesday which reads as follows:
Our prayers and thoughts go out to all who have lost loved ones and those who have been made homeless. Nyaradzo has deployed staff and equipment to Manicaland, which stands ready to help bring the much-needed relief to those affected by Cyclone Idai.
In situations like this, it is meticulous planning, teamwork and coordination that carry the day. We are in constant communication with teams on the ground to ensure that those affected are provided with the aid they so desperately need as soon as it is logistically possible.
We are working hand in hand with other organisations to ensure decent burial for those who sadly lost their lives in the aftermath. The measure of a nation is seen in how it treats its most vulnerable and how it buries the dead.
