American foundation donates wheelchairs
The American Wheelchair Foundation and Lodzi hunters has donated wheelchairs and other goods worth thousands of dollars to various institutions.
The donations saw Matabeleland North province receiving 17 wheelchairs while Matabeleland South got 6 with Mpilo hospital, Ministry of Health and St Mary’s home each benefiting one.
Besides the wheelchairs, the beneficiary institutions were also given crutches, toys, clothes and football equipment.
In giving his key note address at the handover ceremony, Minister of State for Matabeleland North province, honourable Richard Moyo, thanked the American Wheelchair Foundation and Lodzi hunters for their kind gesture, noting that it would go a long way in addressing the needs of various members of the society.
The donation that was sourced by Lodzi hunters’ representative, Mr Paradzai Nhemachangwe, after realising the need of a wheelchair by his brother resulting in him contacting the American Wheelchair Foundation, was described as a way of giving back to the community.
