CITY of Harare Emergency Services front line workers received a major boost this Wednesday after Lyon and Warriors forward Tinotenda Kadewere, through his Kadewere Foundation extended their hand by donating grocery items just to appreciate their steering efforts in fighting Covid-19.
Foundation chair Prosper Kadewere says the gesture at the City Sports Centre in the capital is their latest show of commitment to assist Zimbabwe in fighting the virus and to ensure front line City Council workers are well catered for.
“These front line workers are very brave, you know testing Covid-19 and dealing with the pandemic and its related issues is not easy hence we thought it wise to cater for their basic needs just to boost their morale and appreciate the great work they are doing. This is just the beginning as we are planning to take the initiative to other centres, ” he said.
“They say charity begins at home that’s why we chose to start with Harare City Council since Tino once played for Harare City FC over and above, we appreciate the sacrifice by these brave ladies and gentlemen.”
Upon receiving the goods, City of Harare Emergency Services Chief Medical Officer Dr Soman Mudariki said the items will go a long way in assisting front line workers with their health needs.
“We are very grateful for the kind gesture, surely it wouldn’t have come at a better time because these people are sacrificing a lot for a healthy cause.”
“Fighting this Covid-19 pandemic is a serious task and the provision of basic needs will surely boost the morale of these workers. We hope this will cascade to other workers as well and will always applaud the gesture by Kadewere Foundation,” said Dr Mudariki.
The City of Harare Emergency Services boss also urged progressive Zimbabweans to mask up, sanitise and always observe Covid-19 regulations.
The Kadewere Foundation which has been helping in identifying talent in Highfield and surrounding areas through the Onias Kadewere Soccer Tournament, is a non-profit making organisation whose core aim is to help both youths and adults to realise their dreams both on and off the field.
The annual event is in honour of the Warriors striker’s late father, Onias, who died six years ago. ZBC 🔺
