MASVINGO – City of Masvingo and the National Aids Council (NAC) have extended a helping hand to Alpha Cottages by providing transportation for goods that were donated to the children's home by the First Lady, Dr Grace Mugabe.
Alpha Cottages, was one of the fifty children's homes around Zimbabwe that benefited from the First Lady's donation of a thousand dollars and other basic commodities for each shelter.
The donations were made in Mazowe and Alpha Cottages had difficulties securing transport to ferry the goods.
Officials from the facility were in Mazowe to celebrate the First Lady's birthday.
NAC then pledged a T35 truck and the city council also chipped in and gave a hundred litres of diesel for the journey.
Superintendent of Alpha Cottages, Brighton Karidza expressed gratitude for the gesture of generosity shown by NAC and the city council.
"We at Alpha Cottages would like to express our sincere gratitude to the council and NAC for what they did to us because without them the donated goods would probably still be stuck in Mazowe.
"Our gratitude also goes to the First Lady, Dr Grace Mugabe for the generous donation," said Karidza.
He also appealed to other well-wishers to help Alpha Cottage so that the facility can meet its operational requirements in the interests of children.
Alpha Cottage is a home for orphaned, abused and other vulnerable children.news
