FIRST LADY TO THE RESCUE
A 13-YEAR-OLD disabled girl in Chipinge has developed sores which are festering on her stumps as her poor family say they cannot afford to take her to the doctor.
Nancy Ndoro was abandoned by her mother whose whereabouts remain unknown and stays with her grandparents.
First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa was moved by the child’s plight and instructed the local leadership to ensure that the child was taken to hospital to receive the necessary attention.
“This is not good. How can a child develop such sores and no one takes action? Please make sure that this child is taken to the hospital, she needs attention as soon as possible,” she said.
Mr Raphel Zongoro from the Department of Social Welfare in Chipinge said Nancy had not been taken to the hospital yet as the district was still looking for a car to transport her from her home.
“Her grandfather had said he would bring her today so that we can visit a doctor but he called to say he had failed. We are now in the process of looking for a car to ferry her from her home to hospital,” he said.
