Ward 20 Councillor Mercy Kasvosve has applauded residents in her ward for complementing the city in contributing towards service delivery initiatives.
In an interview Cllr Kasvosve said donors have been assisting her ward in various projects.
“With the economic hardships being experienced throughout the country, I am happy to say residents of my ward have been stepping up and helping wherever possible.”
“Although the Council is short staffed, a reliable donor made headway through offering patients with physio-therapy sessions to residents who suffered strokes or other physical related ailments.” she said.
Cllr Kasvosve added that caregivers have been a blessing to school pupils as they donated books and solar lamps at a school in her ward.
“Recently, Royal Club a donor also donated books at Tsinhirano Primary School which had no library and also solar lamps for the pupils.
“As Zimbabwe is currently experiencing extensive load shedding, the donations could not have come at a better time. This will help the students educationally, and improve the pass rate.” she said.
She said a church in her area had donated solar powered boreholes which are assisting the community at time when the city is facing water challenges as a result of drought and other factors.
Tel-One also assisted the ward through donating bins in order to reduce litter and keeping their surroundings clean especially at Kamunhu Shopping Centre.”
