20 March 20217, MASVINGO – Masvingo Rotary Club in conjunction with Book Aid International on Monday donated medical school textbooks to Morgenster Hospital School of Nursing as a way of fulfilling their mandate of serving communities.

"As Masvingo Rotary Club, we are glad give this consignment to the school of nursing. We know that it will go a long way in helping the hospital.
"We are also happy to partner Book Aid International and other organisations to serve communities. These organisations work with us very well because of our track record of transparency," Bhiza said.
Provincial health promotions officer, Casper Nhemachena, who represented the Provincial Medical Director (PMD) at the ceremony, thanked Masvingo Rotary Club for remembering Morgenster Hospital.
"We are happy that we have been remembered. The books that the school got today will be of great importance to students and their tutors.
"We plead with them to keep on supporting not only Morgenster Hospital but other hospitals in our province," he said.
Rotary International District 9210 governor; Lee Ann Shearing, Morgenster Hospital Medical Superintendent; Dr Tafadzwa Muchengwa, Masvingo Rotary Club director of club services; Sam Muzvanya, hospital staff and students attended the event.
