The Zimbabwe Empowerment Trust(ZET), on Monday donated food to the under privileged persons in Harare. The move concides with calls by the Government and SADC in calling for the removal of sanctions.

This was held at a local event in Harare where the elderly, orphans and other marginalized groups gathered to receive food donations.

The founder of ZET, Pastor Alexia Kuona, a philanthropist said the donations given to underprivileged is a sign that Zimbabweans can remember one another during economic hardships. Despite sanctions people must survive with the little they have.

“We should remember one another as Zimbabweans, especially during these economic sanction hardships. Sanctions are there but that should not stop us from continuing to build our nation. Our country is endowed with natural resources. So it is against this background that as Zimbabwe Empowerment Trust we are there to support our local communities through empowerment programmes.”
