ivil Service Travel Bureau, a Division of CourierConnect donated two (2) air tickets to Kidzcan, a Zimbabwean Cancer Association for children at a colorful, but touching ceremony held at Kidzcan Offices in Harare.
Speaking at the handover ceremony the Managing Director for CourierConnect, Mr Isaac Muchokomori said the organization was moved by the situations in Zimbabwe, where children are dying of lack of medication in the country, hence the decision to give deserving children air tickets so that they can go and get treated in South Africa where medication is available at low costs.
The Executive Director for Kidzcan, Dr Nthombi Muchuchuti expressed gratitude and was very amazed and humbled by this gesture. She advised that the day CSTB gave them the tickets, at about 3pm, there was an emergency treatment requirement from Parirenyatwa Hospital frantically requesting assistance with flight fares to Port Elizabeth Hospital for Haematological Assistance.
