MINISTER of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Paul Mavhima took delivery of a food consignment donated by Prophet Uebert Angel in Gokwe over the weekend.
This town becomes the 47th beneficiary since Angel launched a countrywide food bail out campaign to assist the needy and cushion them against effects of the Covid-19 induced lockdown .
Truck loads of mealie-meal drove to the Midlands town located 350km from Harare. The philanthropist set aside US$1 million dollars through his Eubert Angel Foundation.
The kitty will benefit the needy across the Sub-Saharan Africa region. Mavhima expressed gratitude to Angel for his timely gesture.
“I would like to sincerely thank my prophet Uebert Angel for the work he is doing in the entirety of Zimbabwe,” Mavhima said.
To date,the foundation has distributed mealie- meal and groceries to places like Highfield, Glen View, Glen Norah, Mufakose, Kambuzuma, Mbare, Budiriro, Chitungwiza, Zaka, Chiredzi, Norton, Harare South, Bulawayo, Gokwe, Hatfield and other parts of Harare.
The donations are not given on basis of political affiliation. The foundation also targeted random areas in cities, giving to the less privileged including Church members of different denominations. Meanwhile, in January this year, Angel paid fees for all pupils at Kadyamadare Primary School in the Chikwaka Communal Lands.
The school has an enrollment of close to 800 pupils. In the following month,he repeated the same feat at Bota Primary School in Masvingo. The school has an enrollment of 1000 pupils.
