Compassionate Justice International, foundedÃ¢â‚¬Â¨by popular writer, Bob Scott, sourced the donations, which will be distributed to selected schools and hospitals in southern Zimbabwe.
Scott expressed relief that the supplies were en-route to Zimbabwe, saying his organisation had struggled since last year to get the $15 000 needed to ship the container.
Once it reaches its destination, the container will be handed over to a non-governmental organization, Hope for Mtshabezi, founded by Scott’s close friend, Lindani Sibanda.
“HfM will be responsible for the distribution of the supplies, which include over 16,000 books, medical supplies and women’s fem-care products,” said the American writer, who rose to world fame with his book Saving Zimbabwe; Life, Death & Hope in Africa.
“HfM runs health clinics in the rural areas. Other recipients will be Mtshabezi Hospital, Well Spring Women’s Network, Morningstar Ranch, the village of Mbezingwe and rural schools in the area,” he added.
The container left America last Monday and could take about six months to get to Zimbabwe. This is the third container to be donated by Scott’s organization.Post published in: News
