“I am very honoured, on behalf of PG Industries Zimbabwe Shareholders and Staff, to be able to present a donation to the Children’s Home and Hosanna Primary school as part of our corporate social responsibility.
‘‘As an organisation we fully understand what the children need and hope. And we also understand what shelter and education means for them,” said Mrs Wei.
