Higherlife Foundation is doing its part, along with the rest of the Econet Group, to lend a helping hand to stem the cholera outbreak facing Zimbabwe.
Along with raising public awareness through radio and television messages, 5 water tanks were installed this week to address the water shortages in Glen View and Budiriro, and 5,000 non-food item kits will be distributed to households in Glen View this week. Plans are also underway to set up an additional Cholera Treatment Unit (CTU) in Glen View, and to distribute sets of protective clothing to the health personnel who are on the front-lines of this crisis.
“On the ground at a clinic in Glen View today, Dr. Kennedy Mubaiwa, CEO of Higherlife Foundation noted that, “We are committed to doing our part and using all resources available to help prevent this outbreak from spreading further. I am encouraged by the swift action that people are taking, and I want to commend all our courageous healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of this crisis. Information is power, and prevention is key, so I encourage everyone to educate themselves and spread the word so we can all stay safe from cholera and save as many lives as possible”.
Fighting this outbreak will need all of us to pull together and act now to help save as many lives as possible.
