Commissioner General, Ms Regina Chinamasa, on 14 December 2022 donated grocery items and goodies worth ZWL10 million dollars to Chinotimba Old People’s Home, Rose of Charity Children’s Home and Abangane Shamwari Disability Organisation in Victoria Falls.

In an emotional delivery, the CG expressed gratitude to founders and overseers of the three Homes whom she commended for the great work that they are doing in taking care of the vulnerable.

“You are making positive contributions to our country and in particular Victoria Falls. It takes people with love, patience, generosity and determination to succeed in doing what you have been doing to keep these institutions running and that is why my team and I thought is wise to give you Christmas Cheer, so that this festive season; life is bearable for all of us.

Taking care of just one child can be a daunting task. Yet you are taking care of 39 or more children and the elderly. I am deeply humbled and wish you well in what you are doing. This is your vision and we can only come in and support the work you started with the few groceries we have,’ said Ms. Chinamasa.

The Commissioner General’s Christmas Cheer under the ZIMRA Charity Trust banner benefitted three organisations in Victoria Falls namely Chinotimba Old People’s Home, Rose of Charity and Abangane Shamwari Disability Organisation.

Over the years, ZIMRA has received overwhelming support from the corporate world through the Annual Charity Ball and other fundraising activities to assist the needy in our communities. In 2022, ZIMRA hosted two events, the Charity Ball and Charity Cocktail in an effort to continue to mobilise resources for disadvantaged communities.

The ZIMRA Charity Trust is responsible for managing the corporate social responsibility

programmes and projects of the Authority. The trust continues to spearhead Charity initiatives to better the lives of the less privileged members of society by offering a full scholarship for tertiary students.

The ZIMRA Charity Trust in 2022 put in place the sanitary wear campaign to not only donate sanitary pads to girls in disadvantaged communities. A number of ZIMRA staff responded to the call in 2022 and donated sanitary wear in their individual capacities and the Trust allocated resources in the ZIMRA region to purchase the sanitary wear for disadvantaged girls.
