Orphans and vulnerable children in Chikomba and Sadza districts of Mashonaland East province have received a shot in the arm from the Alfred Dondo Foundation in the form of school fees grants. The Alfred Dondo Foundation (ADF) is part of the corporate social responsibility of local car hire firm Impala Car Rental whose CEO is Thompson Dondo. Dondo is the brains behind the organisation which he founded in honor of his late brother Alfred. The Children are draw from under-privileged families, ranging from those with disabilities and impairments, including visual, hearing and mental challenges. Impala Car Rentals Projects Manager, Tracy Ngoma said mobilizing resources for the charity organisation was an ongoing process and he called for partnerships. He said they have paid the termly grants for the third term, in the form of school fees, stationery, uniforms, and food for 65 children under the Alfred Dondo Foundation. Ngoma said although the charity organisation was taking care of the orphans and vulnerable children, some of the children’s needs were beyond their capacity to provide. They have gone further in meeting some of the children’s medical needs but for others, their conditions are beyond their means, hence the need to have partners who can chip in.
