LONDONER Entertainment Foundation Trust will every month until the end of the year donate sanitaryware and food stuffs to different female artists.
The Trust, a brainchild of Peter and Joyce Mubi has since the coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown helped seven groups with different interventions.
The seven groups include Zoey and the Red Angels, DJ Torne, Apama, Tyrants, Sungura Boys (Byo) and an Albino charity organisation home that runs a small musical band.
Joyce Mubi said: “The board has agreed to donate goods to two female artists every month until the end of the year.
“The ladies will receive sanitary pads apart from the groceries. This is our contribution to the entertainment sector which has been affected by the current lockdown.
“And we are not doing this on our own as we have several partners who are chipping in with donations.
“As for this month we are happy that Gertrude Zhuwaou who is in Zambia has made the donations which will go a long way. She says she is touched by the plight of female artists in Zimbabwe, hence the gesture. She has sent an assortment of goods which are already in the country and ready for disbursement.”
This week, Pindurai Mwakurudza a Londoner Entertainment Foundation Trust Trustee donated goods to recipient Tendai Kativhu.
Kativhu is a professional dancer having showcased in groups led by Lady Storm, Cream Lollipop and Blue Virgins.
“So she will share with her colleagues most of the goods,” said Mubi.
