Zimbabweans living in the diaspora have set up an online platform, Zimthrive, which they are using to source resources and funds to aid people affected by Covid-19.
Mr Kudzai Midzi a financial consultant who is also part of the initiative said they came together as Zimbabweans with various skills in the fight against Covid-19.
"As we were on the Facebook page seeking funds towards this fight, a lot of people were worried about accountability of the funds raised via this initiative.
Dr Chireka who is a patient engagement advocate and a health ambassador for Zimthrive said they noticed a gap in the communication of the dangers of Covid-19 and the lack of engagement of communities.
To achieve our goal, we mainly focus on risk communication and community engagement as we carry out our mission of listening to suggestions that come from the members of the Facebook group, this group is for Zimbabweans by Zimbabweans through Zimthrive," said Dr Chireka.
