ZANU PF legislator for Bulawayo South, Rajeshkumar Indukant Modi and an England-based Zimbabwean businessman, Mr Jay Patel, donated 10 tons of mealie-meal to the marginalised groups in Bulawayo on Friday.
Themealie-meal was given to senior citizens, people with disabilities, orphans and widows in Tshabalala, Sizinda, Barham Green suburb, Ekuphumuleni Geriatric Nursing Home, John Smale (an orphanage) and Rhodes Jubilee Cottage (an old age home).
While Patel said that his gesture was inspired by Modi’s charitable work, Modi urged those who can to assist the underprivileged. Mr Modi who is also the Deputy Minister of Industry and Commerce said:
What Mr Patel has done should be commended. We need more people like him to donate to the needy. We should all play a part to help our relatives. If you have more than you need, it is noble to share with a neighbour who has nothing or very little.
