THE country’s largest integrated media house, Zimpapers, has donated an assortment of goods worth thousands of dollars to Shungu Dzevana Children’s Home in Mhondoro as part of its corporate social responsibility.
Zimpapers Digital and Publishing (DAP) general manager Mr Marks Shayamano and The Sunday Mail Editor, Victoria Ruzvidzo, handed over 10 bunk beds, mattresses, 100 plates, and 100 cups to the home on Friday.
Mr Shayamano said the company will next year drill a borehole at the shelter to provide water for the institution.
“We are going to fulfil the water needs arising from the area of farming by a drilling borehole.
“The borehole will not only provide water for consumption but for the farming project.
“The borehole drilling project is going to be embarked on early next year. ”
Ruzvidzo said facilitating development was at the core of Zimpapers’ work.
“As The Sunday Mail we are a family newspaper and as we know a family consists of parents and children and in a family, children are the most important.
“We know this is not all that they need but we did our best so that we can assist them.
“Most rural areas were neglected but we thank God for the Second Republic that is also taking care of that.
“As Zimpapers at large and The Sunday Mail in particular we do not leave out rural areas and rural development because rural areas are important in national development.
“So we are here to extend a hand as we have done with the beds and with the cutlery that we have brought today.
“We hope this will make a difference in your everyday life.” Shungu Dzevana founder and national executive director Sister Mercy Mutyambizi thanked Zimpapers for the donation.
“We are very grateful to Zimpapers for thinking about the vulnerable in our society.
“We thank God and ask him to continue blessing each and everyone who has put a hand in here.
“It takes a lot of effort to drive all the way from Harare to Mhondoro with these beds, mattresses and cutlery.
“We are very grateful because you did not only stop there but you also promised to embark on a borehole drilling project.”
