The company renovated wards B1 and C5 and the respective nurses’ duty rooms which were in a general state of disrepair. The organisation also supplied linen and installed hot water systems in the wards.
Speaking at the handover ceremony on Thursday, Mimosa executive chairman, Winston Chitando said the platinum miner will continue with its corporate social responsibility to the health sector and others to improve people’s lives.
“It is our sincere belief that today’s handover goes some way towards underlining that mining houses and the state can collaborate in unlocking key national programmes,” he said.
“Today should also be testimony that our two parties working in unison can ensure that our socio economic agenda as espoused in ZimAsset, is fully realized.”
Chitando said Mimosa had a profound history of partnership with Government and other stakeholders in transforming the lives of ordinary Zimbabweans in the areas of health, education, water reticulation, environmental preservation and infrastructural development.
He said Mimosa ‘s interventions in the health sector include the provision of equipment, refurbishment of institutions as well as an on-going wellness programme which benefits Mimosa employees, their families and the entire nation.
Other notable health institutions which have benefited from Mimosa’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme include Zvishavane District Hospital, Harare Hospital School of Nursing and Chitungwiza General Hospital.
