Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Pa­tience Mut­siwi Mid­lands Reporter

THE Air Force of Zim­babwe has do­nated cloth­ing and sta­tionery worth $3 500 to var­i­ous chil­dren and old peo­ple’s homes in Gweru.

It was all joy and smiles as ben­e­fi­cia­ries from the Queen of Peace Chil­dren’s Home, Kushinga Pri­mary School, Batanai Old Peo­ple’s Home re­ceived the do­na­tions at a han­dover cer­e­mony which was held at Queen of Peace Chil­dren’s home.

Gweru Air­force base com­man­der Group Cap­tain Elisha Masakadza said they de­cided to do­nate to the less priv­i­leged af­ter re­al­is­ing that this year peo­ple are fo­cus­ing much on buy­ing food other than cloth­ing and sta­tionery due to poor a har­vest.

He said they have pre­vi­ously do­nated to the less priv­i­leged in Gokwe and they would con­tinue as­sist­ing the needy through fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives.

The founder of the Queen of Peace Chil­dren’s Home Mrs Stella Pu­nungwe said the do­na­tion gives hope to the less priv­i­leged.

“This is a ges­ture to show ev­ery­one in the com­mu­nity that be­ing less priv­i­leged doesn’t mean that you are no longer a hu­man be­ing. These peo­ple need to be taken good care of. l would like to thank Com­man­der Masakadza for his sup­port. He al­ways help us with labour. May the Lord bless him,” said Mrs Pu­nungwe. — @patiemt­siwi
