Sakunda Holdings has applied for a license to the Ministry of Health to convert Rock Foundation Medical Centre into a clinic that will cater for coronavirus patients.
In a letter addressed to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health and Child Care, Everton Mlalazi, an official in charge of Special Projects at Sakunda holdings wrote:
The government of Zimbabwe has implemented a raft of measures to curb and control the outbreak of the disease albeit under tough economic circumstances.
It is against this background that Sakunda Holdings (PVT) Ltd and its associates have come up with a private initiative to complement government efforts to curb this pandemic specifically in the provision of health facilities, equipment, training and vaccines.
Sakunda has identified Rock Foundation Medical Centre as a facility in the fight against COVID-19.
Licenses will be sought from the following bodies:
Radiation Protection Authority of Zimbabwe
Medical and Dental Council of Zimbabwe
Health Professions Authority
