We embarked on a water project in Harare and Bulawayo in which we donated purified water as part of nationwide COVID-19 response to assist the communities affected by water shortages. The donation is in partnership with the respective city councils of Bulawayo and Harare. The aim of this project is to provide water for households to practice good hand washing and body hygiene as a mitigation to Covid19 and the other diseases that can further burden the fragile healthcare system. The bulk water bowsing project has the goal of donating up to 1million liters of purified water to various communities across the country.
To date we have donated over 500 000 liters of purified water to locations in Budiriro, Cowdry park, Luveve, Glenview, Magwegwe, Pumula South and Pumula East, Nkulumane, Glen Norah, Mufakose, Hopley, Warren Park and Cold Comfort 1, Warren Park, Hopely Southlands, Glenwood Park and Springview Ruwa. We partnered with Dan Church Aid, Natpack, Blackbox investments, Rawplast industries and Gold Star sugars to set up tanks for the purpose of water bowsing.
We designed partnership models with local rural communities across the country who pick guava fruit. In this, we work with the local people, mostly women and youth who are empowered to earn their own income from the land. We have impacted over 2000 families, unlocking shared value from the guavas that are grown naturally in their environment and then monetizing it for their own economic benefit.The fruit is then collected through our logistical system that ensures quality raw materials are brought from the communities to the processing plant strategically located in Norton, to begin the transformation process.
We are a proud long term supporter of Kidzcan an initiative that seeks to serve children and families affected by cancer as well as communities throughout Zimbabwe. Kidzcan conducts Paediatric Cancer Early Detection and Awareness Campaigns/Workshops across different communities in Zimbabwe.
As Schweppes Holdings Africa Limited we join KidzCan in commemorating Orange Month. Every year in the month of February we join KidzCan in raising awareness on childhood cancer and fundraise towards drugs and welfare needs of childhood cancer patients and their families. Our staff voluntarily wear orange to raise awareness and we collectively donate to KidzCan per individual who comes to work wearing orange. These campaigns are themed with various calls to action that are in line with the KidzCan annual theme.
