We continue to offer support to older persons (OPs) in Bulawayo and Marondera rural.
In Bulawayo, the Covid-19 older persons (OPs) emergency response project which commenced in the first quarter of 2021 is progressing well and will come to an end in July 2021. The project has provided medication and psychosocial support to OPs admitted at United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) and Thorngrove Hospital Covid wards, installed a water tank to an old age home and Covid-19 awareness campaigns are ongoing.
To ensure the availability of clean and safe water for OPs in Marondera, borehole maintenance was conducted in the four sites of the project namely Arcadia, Chiota, Border church and Wenimbe. The locations in need of water were identified by the OP Champions who were chosen to represent the older persons and community.
Thanks to our Anonymous donor for making it all possible!
