Six community-based organisations have received $90 000 grants from the United States of America, that will benefit 36 people living with HIV/Aids.
Deputy minister of Tourism, Walter Kanhanga said the grants will go a long way in assisting community-based projects.“Small as they may look, most of our people don’t have income. In our case, the grant is for 36 people living with HIV. They will work in two ways, which are nutrition and income through selling some of the eggs. This augurs well with ZimAsset,” he said.
