We are committed to promoting the continued development of the City of Gweru. by mobilising, coordinating, channelling and supporting initiatives across the world by corporates, organisations, charities, individuals, academics, sports disciplines with connections and or passion for the City of Gweru.
We aim is to improve the health, wellbeing and social welfare of the City of Gweru residents through identifying the needy sections for support interventions.
Our COVID-19 Initiative
Currently, our City is at the risk of the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic. This presents us with an immediate challenge to provide support for healthcare services. Our most urgent priority is the resourcing of our clinics across the city with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). While Gweru has to date not registered any case of COVID -19, and, we aspire for this trend to continue, this cannot be guaranteed. Looking at the trajectory of the pandemic and its impact elsewhere, we cannot wait and watch; we need to be prepared for any eventualities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged communities across the world with the most hit areas being in Italy, China, Spain, US and UK. With no cure at the moment, countries and communities have been forced to adopt preventive measures to reduce and prevent the spread through interventions such as social distancing and rigorous personal hygiene including regular handwashing. These preventive measures are working in slowing the rate of infection and giving countries time to prepare health facilities and mechanisms of curtailing the pandemic
We are mindful of several other initiatives on the ground coordinated by the Government, the City Council, MPs and church leaders. Our efforts are not meant to compete, but rather, to plug any gaps and complement on-going efforts.
We are, therefore, calling on all people who have a connection and passion for Gweru to join our efforts through donating in cash, kind or expertise as we fight this pandemic.
