Howard and Karanda Mission Hospitals in Mashonaland Central province for playing a critical role in providing treatment to Zimbabweans across the country.
The two hospitals in Chiweshe and Mt Darwin are run by The Salvation Army and Evangelical Church respectively.
Acting President Mujuru made the remarks at the handover of comforters and shoes from a local manufacturing company, Waverley Blankets for distribution to people in her constituency. “I have a long request that I have been given by two hospitals that have done us wonders in this country,” said Acting President Mujuru.
“These are Howard Hospital which is under the Salvation Army church. Howard treats people from all over the country like Bikita, Masvingo and Bulawayo. We also have Karanda Hospital in Mt Darwin, they also treat people from all over. Again from Masvingo, from Gwanda, from everywhere.
“I am going to take them there because I want them to benefit not only people from my constituency, I want them to benefit Zimbabwe because every sick person who visits those hospitals benefits from their warmth.”
Acting President Mujuru hailed Waverley Blanket director, Mr Victor Cohen for his continued support in uplifting the lives of Zimbabweans.
The same company recently donated water purifiers, oral rehydration salts and blankets for distribution to the needy across the country’s provinces through Acting President Mujuru’s office.
A representative from Waverly Blankets, Mr Patrick Chiremba said the consignment worth about US$35 000 was meant to complement Acting President Mujuru’s efforts in uplifting lives of all communities.
