THE Zim­babwe Na­tional Lib­er­a­tion War Vet­er­ans As­so­ci­a­tion in Bu­l­awayo’s Dis­trict 11 has em­barked on a cam­paign to raise about $50 000 to com­plete con­struc­tion project.

The dis­trict owns a piece of land in Nketa 6, where they are plan­ning to build a con­fer­ence hall, ad­min­is­tra­tion block, a so­cial club and a vo­ca­tional train­ing cen­tre for the youths.

Cde Jange Chimeri the dis­trict’s sec­re­tary yes­ter­day said: “We’ve a big piece of land in Nketa 6 and we plan to put up struc­tures that ben­e­fit war vet­er­ans in the dis­trict, the youth and the com­mu­nity. The struc­tures are at foun­da­tion level.”

He said the dis­trict will on Satur­day have a gen­eral meet­ing to pre­pare for the fundrais­ing party that will be held at the dis­trict’s of­fices on Oc­to­ber 22.

“The meet­ing will be at­tended by war vet­er­ans from the dis­trict, wid­ows and wid­ow­ers of war vet­er­ans, ex-de­tainees and re­strictees, war col­lab­o­ra­tors, war vet­er­ans’ spouses and chil­dren as well as the com­mu­nity.

“For the fundrais­ing party, which will be held at the stand in Nketa 6, we’re invit­ing all war vet­er­ans, ex-de­tainees and re­strictees, war col­lab­o­ra­tors, war vet­er­ans’ chil­dren and the whole com­mu­nity of Bu­l­awayo,” said Cde Chimeri.

He ap­pealed to Bu­l­awayo res­i­dents to as­sist in the con­struc­tion project.

“We’re ap­peal­ing to our fel­low free­dom fight­ers, the cor­po­rate world and the com­mu­ni­ties to as­sist us in this no­ble cause.

“The cen­tre will go a long way in pro­vid­ing fa­cil­i­ties that will im­prove the lives of the lo­cal com­mu­nity, es­pe­cially our young peo­ple,” said Cde Chimeri.
