The UK based Dr Brighton Chireka has writtten revealing that the weeping female doctor Mashumba is now running a Trust.

In his post titled, “Now we have a plan for our hospitals,” Dr Chireka said, several people have been asking what they can do to help our hospitals. I had a privilege to visit our hospitals and was humbled by the dedication of our health workers. They are doing a fantastic job in challenging situations. They have to make hard decisions everyday but they keep going.

Dr Mashumba and Dr Chireka

Had a privilege of meeting Dr Mashumba and they have now registered Parirenyatwa Children’s trust that will fundraise for the Paediatric wards at Parirenyatwa.

So where do you come in? The trust will identify areas of need focussing on low hanging fruits that you can help with.

I also met with Gugu Mahlangu who is the Director General of Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe (MCAZ) who cleared a lot of misconceptions about donating medical supplies. I have detailed notes but I am happy to say people can easily donate medical devices such as syringes and cannulas without any problems. MCAZ regulate medicines , gloves and condoms . Having said that we must make sure that whatever we are donating is of high quality so that we do not spread infection with our donations.

So what can you do if you want to donate medical supplies? Kindly get in touch with us and we will direct you to the right people and right channels. Please do not rush into shipping medical supplies without discussing with MCAZ.

Also met with Hopewell Chin’ono who helped in raising awareness about the plight of our hospitals . We have now passed that stage of raising awareness . We are at the stage of helping our hospitals. Let’s now walk our talk as Zimbabweans !

Let me once again encourage everyone to adopt a local clinic or a ward at a hospital and support that area. For example our health workers need our appreciation like donating a microwave for them to warm their food , TV for them to watch when on break , computers to surf the net and refrigerators to keep their food. These are basic things that you and I can also help with easily.

Let me end by saying this Chinese proverb, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago and the second best time is now.” May I say the second best time to help our hospitals is now. What are you waiting for ? Me and the rest of Zimbabwe Diaspora Health Alliance are keen to play our part in helping our hospitals. Let’s do it !
