As a Trust we sourced some money which we used to help save a life in Luveve, this being Mr Emmanuel Moyo who urgently required colostomy tubes and bags. He was operated on his stomach during the recent diarrhoea outbreak.
We also paid a courtesy call to the affected community where we also took time to mourn with them over the deaths of their loved ones due to this disaster,
