Zimnat has lived to its promise to continuously support the elderly by providing free motor insurance cover for some of Melfort Old People’s Home vehicles for the year 2020, a continuation from 2019.
Located along Mutare Road, in Harare, Melfort Old People’s Home, which is registered with Help Age, accommodates up to 60 elderly residents, most of whom have been referred to it by the social welfare department.
The home received a donation of vehicles beginning of 2019 and immediately approached the Zimnat Group for assistance with motor insurance. With the knowledge that the elderly, the community’s senior citizens need as much help as they can get, Zimnat decided to provide free insurance cover for the home’s vehicles. The first-year term of insurance recently expired and Zimnat proactively renewed the insurance for another year.
Upon visiting the home initially, it was discovered that much more needed to be done to help the institution make life better for its residents. This resulted in the launch of a charity drive dubbed the Heart to Hand Campaign which resulted in a significant donation of goods which included a 4-plate gas stove, bed linen, grocery items, clothes, cleaning detergents, and agricultural inputs that would help the institution become self-sufficient.
The Group Chief Executive Officer, Mustafa Sachak, then committed to continuously see to it that support is rendered to Melfort Old People’s Home. Zimnat has not disappointed, they have proactively renewed the insurance, free of charge for another year. “We endeavour to continue making life better for the Melfort community, despite these challenging times, and hope our efforts will go a long way,” said Tatenda Marongwe Zimnat Group Marketing Executive
“The Zimnat and Masawara family have shown us kindness and love over the past years and we are so grateful that they always help us in whatever way they can,” said Pastor Francis the home’s superintendent.
