Miss Global Zim to raise funds for Chivi hail storm victims

HARARE - Miss Global Zimbabwe Mutsa Mutare has launched a campaign to assist victims of last week’s destructive hailstorm in Chivi that left 35 homesteads severely damaged.

The effort to pool resources for the affected Chivi families by Mutare was confirmed by the Miss Global Zimbabwe head of public relations Tare Munzara yesterday.

“We feel for the Chivi victims and Miss Global Zimbabwe has expressed her feelings over this tragic incident.

I can confirm that she has started an action group called Chivi Action Relief,” said Munzara.

 According to Munzara the assistance bid for the Chivi villagers which has been dubbed The Action Relief Campaign led by the beauty queen is planning to approach food companies, construction companies and even individuals who are capable of rendering assistance.

“We are trying to reach to all manner of companies to help us meet the needs of the Chivi victims. Letters are being dispatched to these companies with urgency because people are in need of our help,” said the Miss Global Zimbabwe spokesperson.

The Action Relief Campaign headed by 22-year-old Miss Global Zimbabwe is concerned by apparent failure by well-wishers to quickly come to the aid of the affected Chivi villagers.

“We want to open a trust account specifically for the Chivi people so that those willing to assist avail much needed financial resources.

“For purposes of transparency we want to make sure that money destined for the affected Chivi villagers won’t be deposited into our account but into a special account,” said Miss Global Zimbabwe spokesperson added.
