Speaking during the handover of several foodstuffs worth $250 000 on Saturday to the Minister of State for Manicaland province Ellen Gwaradzimba, GMAZ chairperson Tfadzwa Musarara said:

The scheme will target the most affected schools and we will work with our government which will help us to identify the needy areas.

We understand that most schools in Chimanimani and Chipinge were ravaged by Cyclone Idai. So the government will help us with the assessment.

Beneficiaries will be given porridge and Maheu in the morning and maize meal and beans in the afternoon.

… Most importantly, this scheme will help encourage attendances in schools. Some schools are remotely located and there is a lot of walking to and from and we felt that as businesses, moreso indigenous who have been enabled and empowered by the government in the food sector, it’s our responsibility to take a step forward.

Musarara said that his organisation had more to give towards the feeding scheme but will stand guided by the government on the way forward.

Minister Gwaradzimba said that the assistance will go a long way in restoring the lives of thousands of people affected by the cyclone.
