Philanthropist and socialite Wanisayi “Mahwindo” Mutandwa yesterday came to the rescue of Eastview triplets when she handed over groceries, clothes and blankets sourced through her foundation.
This follows the publication of their plight in last Friday’s H-Metro. Named Mahwindo Foundation, the organisation has been bailing out the vulnerable during the Covid-19 lockdown who lost their source of income.
These comprised the elderly, musicians and the poor.
And yesterday Mahwindo brought smiles to the triplets’ mother Rumbidzai Tsvangirai who was deserted by her husband, Davison Nzou. The story went viral on social media after H-Metro broke the news with well-wishers pledging donations.
Rumbidzai was at a loss for words after she received goods worth over US$800.
“I am at a loss for words after receiving these goods from Mahwindo Foundation.
“When we went public about the issue, we were didn’t expect to get these stuff. “These guys are heaven sent and I pray that God bless them. “I have seen the power of God and newspaper (H-Metro), “she said.
Speaking at the same event, Mahwindo pledged to continue assisting the triplets through her foundation.
“As Mahwindo Foundation, we will continue assisting such vulnerable people who need our assistance through our foundation. “In our case, we are sourcing this stuff through our firends and they are due ones who sent me with this stuff,” she said.
Meanwhile, musician Peter Moyo accompanied Mahwindo to Eastview where he also bought some groceries for the triplets.
To date, Mahwindo Foundation has donated to the elderly in Seke communal lands and Chitungwiza, Banket, CAPS United and recently partnered Twabam Foundation and donated to musicians and actors.
Individuals who helped her source the donations comprised Team Danya, Boss Scott and Peter Moyo.
