HEALTH minister David Parirenyatwa said whatever the politicians say about the American government, it is now time to say thank you for uplifting the lives of many Zimbabweans.

Parirenyatwa said this at the USAID/AFRICAID Zvandiri $20 million grant signing ceremony that took place at a local hotel in Harare Thursday.

The grant is one of the largest single awards USAID has given to a Zimbabwean organisation.

Zvandiri is working and supporting the Ministry of Health in 22 districts in the county.   

“There have always been issues with the American government and now they have a very active President (Donald Trump), I hope he won’t cut down the support because it is helping to uplift the lives of many people,” Parerinyatwa told Zvandiri management and the invited guest.

“So, whatever we may say about the American government let’s just thank them for affording this $20 million to the Zimbabweans, thank you.”

He added, “We wish that you (Zvandiri) would use it as usual efficiently, transparently uplifting the lives of people living with HIV.”

The Health Minister then said he had been assured by Funk (USAID Zimbabwe director where the money is coming from) that if Zvandiri uses the money in a transparent manner next time they will add more.

Zvandiri is currently supporting more than 32 000 children, adolescents and young people living with HIV in 10 provinces. 

USAID Zimbabwe Mission director Stephanie Funk said the US government stands with the people of Zimbabwe in support of efforts to end the HIV epidemic.

“By changing the lives of individuals, we are changing families, changing communities, changing the country and even changing the world, all for the better.”
