COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR GENDER –
Sithule Tshuma formed a social media Facebook group for Zimbabwean women based in the UK who come from Matabeleland and Midlands regions. The aim of the 3000 members’ group is to contribute small amounts of £6 every month for purchasing blankets for district hospitals. Due to the dire economic situation in Zimbabwe, poor vulnerable patients were being requested to bring their own blankets. The group has tremendously helped the hospitals. Qoki Zindlovukazi now has a Funeral Assistance group to help members and their immediate family should there be death in the family; this has significantly helped with financial resources. The group has also empowered members to climb the property ladder by saving money together to raise deposits for purchasing properties. To date, Qoki Zindlovukazi has donated over 1,300 blankets to different hospitals and £1,000 worth of groceries.
