Gweru Mayor Josiah Makombe has urged the community to uphold Good deeds by giving to society’s vulnerable groups.
Speaking during the official launch of the Good Deeds Day Zimbabwe in Gweru recently, Makombe said it’s an honour when people gather to share a common vision and notion of doing well at home.
“The world is always surrounded by people in need of assistance in any form and by the virtue of our existence as rational beings we have both the opportunity and responsibility of participating in doing good. Let us be on top of doing good by helping the disadvantaged, the crippled, the aged and the orphans in our communities because these people are in need of our assistance,” he said.
He said the Good deeds Day becomes a leading day of giving in nation and the world at large as people‘s actions will speak.
“I believe if people will think good, speak good and do good the circles of goodness will grow in the world as this day has become the leading day of giving and volunteering,” said Makombe.
Good Deeds Foundation Director, Oswald Chishanga said all stakeholders must take part in the good deeds activities as everyone has a task of making a difference in someone’s life.
“Everyone is encouraged and called to take part in the Good Deeds Day activities be it the Government, the Non-Governmental Organisations, Companies, individuals, churches as we all have a task to make a difference in someone’s life.
“So far 100 countries took part in the Good Deeds Day and in Africa 19 African countries took part and 3500 000 Volunteers took part in this year ‘s event. So in African 5 other countries have launched the program and we are among them .to mention a few these are Sierra Leone, Zambia, Uganda among other” said Chishanga.
