AfriCares funding constraints

africareHARARE - Financial constraints are hampering humanitarian organisation, AfriCare, from undertaking its programmes in different parts of the country.

Health Programmes manager, Toendepi Kamusewu, said AfriCare required US$3 million to expand its programmes since it did not have its own source of funds.

AfriCare began HIV and AIDS programmes in Manicaland and Midlands provinces.

If we receive funds we can start the projects elsewhere, said Kamusewu.

The organisation introduced the Buhera small Livestock project where the community provides livestock which is then given to people infected with HIV and AIDS to rear.

Other programmes being run by AfriCare include Urban Joint Initiative Project, Nutrition On Wheels (NOW) and Rujeko Gardens in Dzivarasekwa high density in Harare.

At least 65 000 people have benefited from Nutrition On Wheels in Buhera, 12 408 in Mutare, 12 408 in Chipinge district of Manicaland as well as 10 973 in Gweru and 6 041 in Zvishavane districts of Midlands province, said Kamusewu.
