14 August 2021
Teecherz Home and Office, a local furniture manufacturer, has donated 20 beds worth US$500 000 to Mpilo Central Hospital staff in Bulawayo following a fire incident that destroyed staff's living residence in May.
Several doctors, pharmacists, radiographers, physiotherapists and other Mpilo Central Hospital personnel lost household property to the fire, believed to have been caused by an electrical fault.

The government and several companies continue to chip in with donations.
Speaking at yesterday’s handover ceremony, Teecherz Home and Office managing director Lameck Veriwa said they partnered with KDV Bedding and Restapedic Bedding. He added:
These beds are a response to the sad news we received concerning the fire incident which occurred on May 26.
We take special recognition that the hospital and most of the staff are our dedicated clients.’
We take pride in being part of this great community, we have 25 more branches around the country.
Mpilo Hospital acting clinical director Francis Chiwora said the donation will go a long way in helping the affected medical personel to recover from the inferno.
It was going to be difficult to handle this kind of loss using our own pockets alone, we thank you for assisting.
Doctors and other health workers housed in the 39-room double-storey building that was gutted down by fire had to jump through windows to escape the inferno.
They would spend the following days housed at temporary locations.
Other stakeholders that have donated to the health institution include OK Zimbabwe that contributed grocery vouchers worth $50 000 each to the medical staff.
