NetOne has donated food hampers to people living with albinism as a way of cheering them up in this Christmas season.
Speaking during the donation in Harare yesterday, NetOne executive public relations Dr Elderette Shereni said the initiative is meant to help the vulnerable and bring back to the society.
“One of NetOne’s CSI pillars is One Care which speaks to Philanthropic initiatives premised on SDG number one which is poverty and number two which is hunger.
“People living with albinism are one of the vulnerable groups we selected this year to add smiles to their faces by donating food Hampers to them as part of spreading festive cheer this Christmas.” She said.
Dr Shereni said as NetOne they have also offered people with Albinism job opportunities so that they can be able to take care of themselves.
“As such as the Netone that cares and is committed to transforming lives and impacting communities, we saw it fit to do something special for persons living with Albinism in partnership with Alive Albinism.”
“We also have several opportunities they can adopt for self empowerment through becoming one money agents who facilitate several transactions from the comfort of their homes whilst earning a commission or selling airtime via One Top Up and generating income to fund critical needs such as sunscreen, foodstuffs and clothing to mention but a few.” She said.
NetOne also donated sanitary wear to women and girls with Albinism.
