Some diasporans from Gutu District have come together to build a maternity wing in Matizha. The good samaritans have collected money and are making a shelter for waiting mothers at Matizha Clinic in Gutu.
The goal of the shelter is to try and provide better facilities in Serima rural areas and close villages. Before this move, many women had to travel long distances to get the help they needed in the maternity ward.
Mothers had to travel almost 30km to get maternity help at the Gutu Mission Hospital or Gutu Rural Health Centre at Gutu Growth Point Centre. Zoma Clinic was the other option, but it’s still not yet finished construction under the government’s devolution fund programme.

Many Zimbabweans have been losing their lives during childbirth due to the challenges in the health sector. Recent studies have shown that the statistics of either mothers or children losing their lives has spiked.
The shelter is almost completed, and the relevant authorities will commission it soon at its official opening.
Gutu Rural District Council CEO Mr Alexander Mutembwa has applauded the diasporans for this beautiful work. He urged other diasporans from other parts of the district to try and give back to the areas that raised them.

“We want to strongly commend Matizha diasporans for pooling resources together and remembering to give back to their place of birth by improving the health delivery system. The ongoing development at Matizha Government Clinic means expecting mothers from around Serima will no longer travel long distances to access maternity services.”
