People at Heart , Chariots Assisting The Community in The Fight Against Covid-19

In our effort to assist in the fight against Covid 19 in Zimbabwe, People at Heart Foundation has initiated a program to produce cotton face masks for free distribution to the marginalized and vulnerable in our community Rusape, Zimbabwe. We have chosen to start with this group because we aim to create an equal opportunity for all and to help provide the minimum protection requirements to all. Zimbabwe has called for masks for all, and reusable, washable masks would be beneficial to the recipients enabling
them to go about their business as lockdown has been relaxed and formal businesses have been allowed to go back to reopen. Masks currently being sold on the market are expensive and not reusable or washable, which makes it difficult for some people to prioritize buying a mask which is only used once.

Coronavirus is spread by droplets that can spray into the air when those infected talk, cough and sneeze. These can enter the body through the eyes, nose and mouth, either directly or after touching a contaminated object. Because we believe that masks will reduce the rate of transmission, we have set a target to produce 1000 handmade masks. Part of our distribution plan is to educate the recipients of the homemade cotton masks on how to use, clean and take care of them, as well as practice good hygiene. We will also advise them not to ignore other protective measures that have been issued by the government and health authorities.

As of the the 7th of May 2020 we are happy to announce that we have made more than 240 handmade masks, with our Chairlady, Mrs W Makuku, spearheading this project. We are currently looking for partners to help us meet or surpass our target. Our first stop in distributing our People at Heart handmade masks was at our local Old People’s Home in Rusape, Zimbabwe. The home houses 20 elders and 3 employees. We gave out masks to all. It was a great experience sharing the masks and teaching the old people how to use the masks.

Thank you to all People at Heart supporters and Chariots supporters for your purchases, you help us make a difference.

Feed The Widows Program

People at Heart Foundation has embarked on a program called Feed the widow campaign, in Rusape Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe has been under lockdown due to Covid 19, which is meant to help control the spread of the pandemic. However, it has affected a lot of marginalized women as they rely on daily sales of produce for their livelihood. Their source of income abruptly vanished and for a month they have been with no income, with most of their reserves being utilized during the lockdown.

This campaign will give widows food hampers and handmade face masks to help alleviate the challenges they are going through. The food hamper will have 10 kg mealie meal, 2 liters cooking oil, a bar of soap, 2kg sugar, 2kg
salt and People at Heart Face Masks. Initially the foundation will fund 20 widows and we will add more beneficiaries to the program in groups of 20s.


Our first group of widows was given their hampers on Saturday the 9th of May 2020. This program coincided with this year’s mother’s day. It was a great way to celebrate mother’s day with these amazing women.

We would like to thank all those supporting us on this project and all Chariots customers for supporting
this beautiful cause.
