The Kuwait embassy in Zimbabwe has donated 200 blankets to the Chikomba Development Association, according to Minister of Information and Publicity Tichaona Jokonya quoted by Tuesday's local media.
Jokonya, who is also member of House of Assembly for the area, said the blankets would be distributed to all clinics in the district.
"It's a very substantial presentation and we need to acknowledge that donation from the Kuwait ambassador," Jokonya said on Monday.
The minister revealed that the association had also acquired 200 boxes of condoms for distribution to the clinics in the district. "The condoms will be given out together with the blankets," he said.
Zimbabwe has one of the highest HIV/AIDS infection rates in the world, at 21.3 percent and about 3,000 people succumbing from AIDS related illnesses each week. As of 2005, the pandemic has left about 980,000 children orphaned.
