Sister Mambodza (centre), Sister-in-charge of Mbare Hostels Clinic in Harare, receives a donation of PPE purchased with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine’s Bump It Forward campaign funds from Primrose Matambanadzo, Programme Director at CeSHHAR Zimbabwe.
In Zimbabwe the first donation of £10,000 was used to procure PPE for 9 public health facilities: Mbare Hostels Clinic in Harare, St Mary’s Clinic in Chitungwiza, Mucheke Clinic in Masvingo, Karoi District Hospital in Karoi, Victoria Falls District Hospital in Victoria Falls, Sakubva Clinic in Mutare, Kadoma General Hospital in Kadoma, Chipinge District Hospital in Chipinge and Vengere Clinic in Rusape. PPE distributed included surgical gowns and face masks, face shields, sanitiser and sodium hypochlorite.
Primrose Matambanadzo, Programme Director for the Key Populations at CeSHHAR Zimbabwe, said “These facilities support our work in delivering services to vulnerable communities in a difficult environment. They continue to provide services with inadequate supply of PPE and are really grateful to receive these donations to supplement what the Government of Zimbabwe is able to provide.”
