MSC gives back to community
MUTARE Sports Club gave an early Christmas treat to Hands at Work in Africa Trust last Saturday as part of the club’s corporate social responsibility initiative.
The centre takes care of vulnerable children and orphans.
It was all smiles at the home as MSC handed over clothes and groceries to the home that caters for 275 children. The goodies were handed over by one of Mutare Sports Club players Tino ‘Save’ Nyawasha.
Nyawasha said they will continue to reach out to vulnerable members of the community.
“It is something I have passion for to help and uplift those in need. It came to my mind that as MSC we can also give back to the community that supports us. We decided to mobilise the available resources together to come up with what we gave to the Sakubva community.
“This is part of our social responsibility to uplift those who are less privileged. We had a nice time playing and interacting with children. We enjoyed our visit and we hope to have a long relationship with them.
“We therefore appeal to the corporate world to make a difference in people’s lives. These are the future players and leaders, so if we neglect them now we have no pillars to stand on tomorrow,” said Nyawasha.
The regional coordinator Farai Gune said: “We are very happy and humbled by Mutare Sports Club’s gesture. We long for a long time relationship with them. MSC did a good thing to spend some time with our kids here.
“We are a Christ-centred organisation that believes in caring for the underprivileged children.
’’In Mutare we have two centres, one at Chinyausunzi and the other one in OTS. We have 125 and 150 children in Chinyausunzi and OTS centres, respectively. We have another centre in Honde Valley where we have 700 children”.
Hands at Work operates in eight African countries, namely South Africa (head office), Malawi, Swaziland, Mozambique, Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Nigeria. They offer three essential services, education, health and food nutrition.
They also provide for clinic fees for the children in need to ease the burden on their struggling families. The children also attend local schools for free or at a reduced price.
