Ingutsheni Central Hospital, located in Bulawayo, has run out of food provisions and detergents.

According to a letter dated 13 December 2022, addressed to the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe (EFZ), the hospital’s chief medical officer, Dr. Manuwere, said they were in a crisis. Part of the letter reads:

Due to current Budgetary constraints, the Hospital is now besieged with overwhelming problems such as a lack of food provisions, particularly mealie meal and cooking oil of which our stocks are currently fully diminished. .

As from Tuesday, the 13th of December 2022 there will be completely no mealie meal and cooking oil to feed the patients. We are in a crisis.

We are therefore urgently appealing through your office for urgent assistance.

Your urgent assistance in this pertinent matter is most welcome.

Recent reports had suggested that there was a food crisis and an outbreak of pellagra at Ingutsheni Central Hospital but the authorities flatly denied the reports.
