Harare Prison inmates graduate. Treger Holdings donated utensils which include 20 000 plastic plates and 20 000 cups. A Local manufacturing company has donated a consignment of kitchen utensils to Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Service.
Speaking during the handover ceremony Treger Holdings chairman Martin Lock said as part of their corporate social responsibility, they chose Zimbabwe Prisons. “We identified Zimbabwe inmates as one of the groups which need our support and we came up with an idea of manufacturing 20 000 plates and 20 000 cups for each and every inmate in Zimbabwe.
“We are privileged to be among those who help because the inmates also need a better life. “A prison is a place for inmates to mature and develop hence there is need for them to have resources,” Lock said.
Receiving the consignment, ZPCS Commissioner-General Paradzai Zimondi said the donation had come at the right time as ZPCS was in need. “I want to register our gratitude for the donation, which the company has pledged to donate a total of 20 000 plastic cups and 20 000 plastic plates.
“Today’s donation has come quite handy in that the utensils’ gap has been partly addressed because each and every inmate no matter one’s location is assured of getting a new cup and plate.
“As an organisation, we shall remain indebted for such a priceless donation, which donation will go a long way in enhancing and meeting our cutlery needs,” Comm Gen Zimondi said.
Comm Gen Zimondi appealed for help from other companies. “Our economy is not at its best, the ZPCS is also not spared by the prevailing economic challenges, which challenges fail the provision of adequate items to inmates among other critical needs.
“It is for that reason that we will continue to appeal to willing partners and stakeholders to come on board and play their part in making a difference on the lives of the incarcerated.”
Treger Holdings through its subsidiaries manufactures different products that include plastic dishes, cups, buckets, irrigation pipes as well as other items such as wheelbarrows and door frames.
