Deputy provincial epidemiology and disease control officer Mary Muchekeza was involved in a car crash in July last year and suffered a broken spinal cord.

Since then she had been in a wheelchair and well-wishers had raised $37 600 for specialised surgery in China, but they failed to meet the travel costs.

Muchekeza is now scheduled to undergo stem cell treatment at Puhua International Hospital in Beijing which specialises in stem cells.

“Muchekeza has been saving lives in the Midlands province and we have decided to offer a helping hand to her through our Wezhira Ndiwonewo programme,” Zivhu said.

“It also our duty to serve each other as Zimbabweans without expecting profit and we encourage everyone to offer a helping hand.”

Zivhu, who is also the Zimbabwe Cross-Border Traders’ Association president, said the Wezhira Ndionewo Project was not only meant to help Masvingo people where it originated, but would cater for those in need of assistance from different parts of the country.

“Muchekeza is leaving the country on Sunday (tomorrow), but meanwhile back home we will continue sourcing for funds in case her treatment takes longer than expected,” Zivhu said.

“We are appealing to well-wishers to donate whatever they have and they can send their donations through Ecocash on 0776741835.

“Whatever remains in this account will assist others who need help.”

Muchekeza will travel to China with her mother.
