Gospel musician, Thembalami Tagwirei, has extended a hand to the disadvantaged by donating US$1 500 to Sunningdale’s Tose Respite Care Children’s home.

The money was part of the musician’s income realised from Econet’s Buddie Beatz platform.

Tose Respite Care Children’s home caters for the needs of a total of 40 disabled children.

Driven by the passion to help the needy, the gospel artiste started the campaign two months ago to raise donations for the home and he mobilised other artistes such as Sabastian Magacha, Mudiwa “Hood”Mtandwa and Life Changing among others to rally behind the cause.

“Corporates Econet and GTel were not to be outdone as they joined the noble initiative to donate goods to the disabled children,” said Tagwirei.

The presentation was dubbed the Brighter Day Event and the artistes got an opportunity to present short performances of their popular hits.

“Zimbabweans are the most generous people, despite the current challenges that the ordinary man is facing daily, we proved today that we can look beyond ourselves and help others,” he said.

Tagwirei said many other individuals had also donated clothing and moral support to the cause and he hoped the Lord would bless them accordingly.

Officials at the institution hailed the donors for their support.

“It was a fantastic and well-organised presentation. I was impressed that such young people walked in and offered their help and managed to keep their word,” said the home’s executive director, Stella Faranisi.

She said such moves would remind other artistes that there is more to music than making their own money and keeping it to themselves.
