Zimbabwe Teachers Association (ZIMTA) has donated goods worth $2600 to over 800 people affected by floods in Tsholotsho. The goods were solicited from Head Office and other ZIMTA Provinces.

Created: 15 March 2017

 

 

ZIMTA Matabeleland North Chairperson, Tapson Sibanda handed over the donation at a handover ceremony at a temporary camp in Sipepa on Tuesday.


Speaking in an interview, Mr Tapson Sibanda said, “After seeing the destruction left by the floods, we as ZIMTA felt the need to step in and assist in the best way we can as this is a national crisis and we need to stand together”.


ZIMTA donated food, stationary for the pupils and toiletries to the flood victims.


Sibanda added that there was still need for more assistance as the victims will be at the camp for a few more months before are relocated and that ZIMTA was going to work hard in organizing teachers to bring more goods for the affected families and children.


“Obviously floods disturb learning and teaching activities and the sooner we step in to help, the earlier the children can go back to school, education is crucial even for flood victims,


“These people have lost their homes and the pegging of new stands will take a few months to be completed therefore they are still in need of great assistance” he said.

Sibanda urged Zimbabweans and all stakeholders to come together and ease the plight of the flood victims through donating food, blankets, stationery and clothing.


Heavy rains caused extensive damage in the past weeks in the country destroying roads, homesteads and even taking lives. Tsholotsho villagers had to be airlifted from their homes to the Sipepa area.
