On 5th of August 2020, twenty persons together with families with chronic illnesses, HIV affected/infected and those in dire need received a cash donation to assist with the purchase of food and other essential needs. Zimbabwe has been seriously hit with drought and then COVID lockdown descended bringing to a screeching halt many of the basic sources of income. The two income generating activities for PLWH of detergent/soap manufacturing and gardening were reduced to nothing due to the multiple calamities. Those involved had no source of income.


They cried to AAIM for help. As a result, AAIM decided to send some cash. The initial idea was to purchase manufactured groceries. But with the hyper-inflation in the country, it was better to give cash.  This way, the money can go a long way by buying the locally produced foods with better nutrition.

With the Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing, mask wearing and an open space where the distribution was made were practiced. This is at the back to the South Zimbabwe Conference adjacent to the Bulawayo Central Church.
Handing over the cash gift is Pastor Thabiso Sibanda- South Zimbabwe Conference President assisted by Pastor Nduna Mpofu, the SZC AAIM Coordinator. Sorry Pastor Nduna had to slip off his mask to be audibly heard as he called out the person to the front.
