Nutritional boost for Bulawayo hospitals

Bulawayo’s major referral health institutions, Mpilo and United Bulawayo Hospitals have received a major nutritional boost through weekly supplies of fresh vegetables from the Zimbabwe Prison and Correctional Services (ZPCS).

Sometimes it doesn’t cost much to make a difference. Those things which might be considered small could make a huge difference.

Out of its abundant vegetable gardens, the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) through its Anjun Farm has reached out to Bulawayo hospitals.

” We farm various types of vegetables. We end up having a lot of vegetables. We decided to give back to our hospitals so that they can feed the staff and patients. We have pledged to continue supplying the institutions with vegetables weekly,” said Senior Assistant Commissioner Modi Nkomo commanding ZPCS Matabeleland North.

Mpilo acting Public Relations Officer, Ozias Ndlovu welcomed the timely intervention which will also serve as a cost-cutting measure.

“We appreciate what you have done for us as your health institutions. Thank you for choosing us to benefit from this gesture. We know there are other institutions that you could have chosen but you chose us to benefit from your hard work.”

Anju Prison Farm offers inmates an opportunity to grow various crops for subsistence and resale. – ZBC
