Doves donates refrigerators, microwaves to Parirenyatwa cancer unit
Doves Funeral Services on Tuesday donated two refrigerators and two microwaves to the Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals’ Paediatric Oncology Unit, which is the only referral centre in the country for children living with cancer.
This follows Doves’ promise to support the ward which takes up to 30 patients in commemoration of World Cancer Day marked on February 4
Speaking at the event, Doves Funeral Services human resources manager Trish Jasi appreciated the hospital for giving them an opportunity to donate.
“As Doves Funeral, this year we are focused on the global health calendar and have decided to do our part.
“This idea to attend to children with cancer was birthed at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals and we decided to shift our focus away from only looking at the wellness of our own staff.
“We are really humbled and feel appreciated to be able to donate to the hospital and it makes us proud as an organisation,” said Jasi.
Jasi also said the funeral service provider will continue partnering with more institutions.
“Doves Funeral Services has also decided to partner with corporates at the beginning of the chain to understand how else we can help to improve the lives of ordinary Zimbabweans,” she said.
The hospitals’ finance director, Mercy Sanzira, welcomed the donation saying it will go a long way.
“As the only ward that looks after children with cancer and haematology disorders, we appreciate what Doves Funeral has done for the hospital.
“The donation will go a long way in helping us conserve a number of things for the children and improve on their recovery,” she said.
In December last year, Doves Funeral Services was rated the best Funeral Service Provider of 2022 in Zimbabwe. The results were revealed through a Twitter poll that was run by a ratings poll agency Service Rate Zw.
The poll listed the top 4 Funeral Service Providers in Zimbabwe Nyaradzo Funeral Services, Kingdom Blue, Kings & Queens and Doves Funeral Services and requested their followers to vote for the best company.
