The Betty Nhambu Kaseke Foundation and the World Friends Day of China last week signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will see free drugs being distributed to vulnerable groups in Zimbabwe.
Speaking at the signing of the MOU in Harare, founder and patron of the foundation who is also a Member of Parliament for Kuwadzana Constituency, Betty Kaseke applauded the Chinese for the gesture which will see the first consignment of drugs being shipped into the country, upon approval from the relevant Ministry.
“We thank our friends from China, World Friends Day, for their friendship gesture through this donation of drugs which they want to bring into the country through the Betty Kaseke Foundation,” she said.
“We have approached the Health ministry and MCAZ so that they can try to do their investigation about the drugs. They say it’s for curing HIV and also for prevention,” said Kaseke.
Beneficiaries of the drugs will include orphans, widows, the elderly and youths in communities.
The drugs would be distributed for free in line with the foundation’s objective of creating real and lasting conducive environments for the vulnerable groups.
Kaseke, who runs a beauty pageant in her constituency through her foundation, said she aims to empower, not only the girl child, but the boys through various projects lined up.
““We are not only looking at the girl child as we also have boy child projects. Very soon we will hold a soccer tournament and we have done a talent search programme for young stars. Our Miss Kuwadzana is going to be heavily involved in charity work,” she said.
