The Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR) on Friday donated an assortment of consumables to Masvingo’s COVID-19 isolation centre.
The donation included personal protective equipment (PPE), testing kits, drugs and medicines as well as medical sundries.
The human rights doctors handed over the donation to the COVID-19 provincial taskforce at Benjamin Burombo Government Complex.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, ZADHR secretary Norman Matara said the main focus for the donation was to assist mainly the healthcare workers. He said:
We found that our local councils, our government needed help from everyone, from partners such as civil society organisations like us, so we organised some resources to try and assist where we can.
Masvingo district development co-ordinator Roy Hove received the donation on behalf of the COVID-19 provincial taskforce.
The ZADHR has previously been to Gweru, Mutare and Bulawayo with the same project. It is working in partnership with the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa.
