Zimbabwe’s first lady, Auxillia Mnangagwa has urged churches to remember survivors of Cyclone Idai who are in needs of many basic commodities including shelter.
Mrs Mnangagwa made the remarks when attended a church service held at the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries (PHD) in Harare this Friday. She said:
In a few days, we will be marking the first anniversary of that disaster the effects of which the government is still in co-operation with various international organisations to address. To the PHD family, try to spare a thought for the people of Chipinge and Chiamanimani who are still living in tents as permanent homes are still to be reconstructed.
Next week marks a year after the tropical cyclone claimed many lives, destroyed homes, properties and schools as well as crops in Manicaland, the province in the Eastern part of Zimbabwe.
The first lady has been engaging with various churches across the country over many issues including the welfare of the survivors of Cyclone Idai.
