Following the announcement of the 21-day lockdown period to prevent the spread of Coronavirus we realised that most people would face food challenges particularly the elderly.
So together with my team we set out to provide food, masks and gloves to the most needy and vulnerable members of our society and that is the elderly people
Most of the beneficiaries are unemployed and hopefully the groceries will go a long way in mitigating hunger during the lockdown period.
Banda’s groceries hampers consist of basics like cooking oil, mealie meal, sugar and other basic stuff, he was also giving away ZWL $1000 to help the senior citizens with their needs that may require a bit of cash. The donations reportedly started 10 days before the lockdown.
