    – The Member of Parliament for Chikomba East, Edgar Mbwembwe has sourced donations for 685 pupils found in two wards in the constituency.
    There was joy at Chimombe Primary in Ward 26 and Chimowa Primary in Ward 27 respectively as pupils from various primary schools gathered to receive a satchel, a set of crayons, lunch box, exercise book and a pencil case each.
    The events happened on Friday last week with the first donation taking place at Chimombe Primary School in the morning. The party then  travelled to Chimowa Primary School later in the day.
    Mbwembwe told The Mirror that the donations were sourced for vulnerable groups from Tzu Chi Foundation, a Taiwan based organization operating in Harare.
    The schools that benefited from Ward 26 were from Mupatsi primary, Nzuma, Chisaira, Mudoti, Chimombe and Doororwa and the pupils who received the donations were from ECD to grade three.
    Tzu Chi is a religious based-organisation, said Mbwembwe. He appreciated the organization for their assistance in his constituency and said they have gone a long way in offering the best assistance to pupils especially when the country is getting difficulties in terms of the economy and sheer availability of food.
    He said the organization had previously assisted two wards with 300 bags of rice.
    Tzu Chi foundation director Chin Chai said they are proud of the Zimbabwean education where every parent supports the idea of taking their children to school. He also appreciated MP Mbwembwe for his hard work
    The criteria for donating to the pupils was to give to the most vulnerable identified by a local committee.
    The committee comprised of Ward 26 councillor Rosemary Mudzviti, school headmasters and the school development committee.
