"I am pleased that GMAZ national executive committee, the supreme decision making organ, has unanimously agreed that the organisation will donate food to your ministry in support of the strenuous efforts you are exerting to contain this pandemic," Musarara said in a letter to Moyo yesterday.

"We will donate 200 monthly generous food hampers for two months to medical personnel specifically deployed to deal with COVID-19 nationwide. This will be our token of appreciation to their families for the hard work and sacrifice."

The letter added: "We will also provide adequate quantities of food (maize-meal, rice, sugar beans) to all COVID referral hospitals for would be patients for the next two years."
