Morris Depot Sports Ground will next month host a fundraising funfair organised by Kuyedza’s Women Club, a non-profit making organisations made up of wives of Zimbabwe Republic Police members. The event, which was shelved last year because of a shortage of funds, bounces back, bigger and better with several entertainment activities lined up for July 7.
Apart from the usual police displays, some of the country’s prominent musicians are expected to join the women in celebrating the event in dance and song.
Top on the list would be dendera prodigy Suluman Chimbetu, gospel musician Sebastian Magacha upcoming crooner Jah Prayzah and the Police Band, which is expected to thrill fans with music from different artistes, both local and across the globe.
Kuyedza club national co-ordinator Mrs Miriam Chengeta said the main objective of the show was to raise money to help widows, orphans and the underprivileged.
“The money we are going to get will go straight to social responsibilities and to support the Commissioner-General’s Welfare Fund.
“Over the years we have managed to help so many people through this club. Last year we gave a family in Mutoko foodstuffs and cash so that they could help themselves,” said Mrs Chengeta.
She said policewomen and wives of policemen started this project to supplement their salaries.
“Besides fund-raising we are also getting money through poultry projects, which are funded by our club vice president Mrs Isabel Chihuri,” she added.
Kuyedza Women’s Club is a non-profit making organisation, which was started by women in the police force in 1958. The main objective of the club is to empower women through income-generating projects.
