Hotelier, African Sun Limited has donated linen and crockery items worth $393 100 to be used in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in Zimbabwe. Mvuma Hospital which is located in Midlands Province is the beneficiary of the Covid-19 donations.
“As part of the clarion call from the government in assisting to fight this serious pandemic Covid-19, African Sun Limited continues to help and assist in any way we can to the communities along the way to some of our hotels,” African Sun managing director Edwin Shangwa said.
“It is our considered view that as we focus on our re-opened hotels for now, some of our customers maybe in need of health facilities on their way to or from our hotels. We now regard health facilities as a business enabler to the success of the tourism and hospitality industry, also not forgetting the communities around the Midlands Province, some of which are our existing customers or future customers.”
Shangwa added that, “Some of our customers travelling by road use Mvuma as their connectivity gateway to Harare, Bulawayo and Masvingo. It is against this background that we have decided to help by donating these items today.”
