NetOne will be donating to the cholera cause a cent for every text message sent until the end of October.
The executive marketing, PR and Customer Experience person, Eldrette Shereni said this would go a long way in supporting the government in killing this disease.
“We want to show the community that we are there for them in this time of need and that is the essence of what we are doing.
“This money we are donating will help in buying more water, chlorine and tablets for the communities that are affected.
“We will be,” she said at a clean-up campaign at Current Shopping Centre in Budiriro 5.
Shereni said they will have a series of campaigns until cholera is eradicated.
“We don’t know when it will end but today is just about unveiling the water we have donated and cleaning up this place but the one cent for every sms will go towards the sustenance of what we have started today.
“We will be taking a portion money from the revenue that we are getting from our sms line towards the campaign,” said Dr Sheren.
In an endeavour to transform lives and develop communities, NetOne responded to the cholera outbreak in Budirio and Mbare.
The company committed to supplying One Million litres of clean water to areas affected by the cholera outbreak in Harare.
“In the process we realised an acute shortage of water storage tanks and as part of our community initiative to supply clean water, we have purchased six by 10 000 litre tanks.
“In conjunction with the Ministry of Health and Child Care, we identified six areas to set up the storage tanks which are; Budiriro 5 Satelite Clinic, Budiriro 1 Primary school, St Faith’s Anglican Budiriro 2, Mbare-Matapi Police Station, Assemblies of God Budiriro 5B and Budiriro 2 Secondary School,” she said.
