PUPILS from St Charles Luangwa displaced by Cyclone Idai and now attending lessons in various schools in Manicaland recently received a shot in the arm when the Roman Catholic Church gave them stationery, food and toiletry hand-outs. Speaking to parents and guardians at the hand-out ceremony held at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Mutare recently, the Roman Catholic Diocesan Education Secretary, Mr Lawrence Chibvuri, said there was need to keep on remembering and supporting students who were affected by the devastation of Cyclone Idai. He revealed that each hamper worth $222, 72 contained a satchel, 33 soft exercise books, 10 counter books, pens and pencils, body lotion, bathe and laundry soap, Cerevita breakfast cereals, peanut butter and sugar. The costs of the hampers were footed by the Harare Rotary Club, he pointed out. The back-to-school hampers were first handed out to 107 pupils in Harare. Mutare was the second port of call. The third and final centre of distribution was St Charles Luangwa Secondary School.
