Under this project, the two companies’ contributed ZWL5million each to make a combined ZWL10million package which financed interventions at three health facilities namely, Mpilo Hospital, Sally Mugabe Hospital and Beatrice Infectious Diseases Hospital.

The Mpilo projects saw the full refurbishment of Ward B5, drilling of a borehole, provision of water tanks, provision of PPEs and provision of new ward furniture and equipment.

Speaking at the unveiling event last week, TelOne Managing Director Mrs Chipo Mtasa said the project came after a realisation that most hospitals were in a dire state and not well equipped to handle emergencies.

“When we came together with NetOne for the COVID-19 project, we were motivated by the realisation of how our public institutions were in bad shape from years of neglect due to resource limitation. We also knew that for the magnitude of the work at hand, it is only through collaboration that we could make a meaningful contribution.” she said.
