Old Mutual Zimbabwe, one of the largest financial services companies in the country, has availed $400 000 towards the fight against cholera. Speaking after presenting the cheque to President Mnangagwa at his Munhumutapa offices in Harare on Wednesday, Old Mutual Zimbabwe group chief executive officer Mr Jonas Mushosho said apart from supporting the country’s economic revival, Old Mutual also seeks to support communities whenever disasters like cholera strike.
He said the company’s contribution towards fighting the outbreak was clear testimony of that gesture.
“It is less about the amount. It is about the thinking behind it.
“Old Mutual is one of the largest financial groups in this country focusing on two things.
“How do we support economic revival so that the country go forward? If the country goes forward, all our people benefit and secondly, how do we support the communities among whom we operate.
“When we have tragedy events like this cholera outbreak, we can not stand on the sidelines, we want to be involved,” said Mr Mushosho.
He said their contribution followed Government’s plea for assistance from all stakeholders financially or in kind towards the fight against cholera.
