The United Methodist Church in Zimbabwe has donated more than $1,300 worth of food to female inmates at Chikurubi Prison.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, Zivorinashe Mujaji, United Methodist Board of Church and Society chairperson for the Harare East District, said the church was touched by the plight of the female inmates who faced many challenges, among them food shortages, while serving their prison terms.
“As (The United Methodist Church), we were disturbed by the food situation obtaining in most prisons around the country, and today we have responded to the call by our counterparts, the Prison Fellowship Zimbabwe, on the challenges being faced by the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services on feeding the inmates,” she said.
