In a developmental move, renowned Johanne Masowe eChishanu Prophet , Madzibaba Tyregy Chigadzira has partnered a local Non governmental organization (NGO) to avail charity donations to persons with disabilities in the small town of Chiredzi.
The donations worth thousands of US dollars were dispatched last week to persons with albinism from Chiredzi and the surrounding communities.
Madzibaba Tyregy Chigadzira became the first Prophet from Johanne Masowe eChishanu to make some cherity donations to people with disabilities in the country.
Speaking to Spotlight Online News Africa Madzibaba Tyregy Chigadzira said the donations were part of an ongoing Programme to raise awareness to the community about disability rights and needs.
“As members of Johanne Masowe eChishanu Apostolic Church we decided to make some cherity donations to persons with disabilities particularly those with albinism from Chiredzi and the surrounding communities. These are the people whose rights deserve to be observed in the society where we belong.”
“We want to make the society to know the fact that people with disabilities are equal with us and therefore we need to remove elements of discrimination amongst ourselves to them. We are equal with them in every aspect of life.
“It is our hope that as Masowe eChishanu we shall continue to partner various organizations in mobilizing resources to cater for the needs of persons with disabilities and those in need.”
The donations comes at a time when most disabled persons are also affected by the ongoing pandemic, COVID-19.
Apart from this , persons with disabilities celebrates the International Day for Persons with Disabilities which observed under the United Nations Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
