AS part of their social responsibility, FC Platinum fans conducted a cleanup exercise dubbed: ‘Typhoid Kick out Cleanup Campaign’ over the weekend in Zvishavane.
The club supporters undertook the campaign together with the Zvishavane council and other partners cleaning the streets, alleys, clearing rubbish and cleaning walls in all public places.
FC Platinum spokesperson Chido Chizondo said the Zvishavane community has been very supportive to the club and fans agreed to play a part in making sure that their town is well-maintained and clean.
“Supporters teamed up with the council to come and clean all littered areas, cleaning walls, cleaning streets and alleys.
“The aim of the campaign was to build greater public awareness on healthy practices that lead to the prevention of the spread of Typhoid and other water borne diseases, and enhance the country’s preparedness against the diseases. FC Platinum players, the Executives, the supporters and the Technical bench went to clean an area in Mandava known as Majaradha which has a reputation of not being very clean. However since we started sensitizing, the community took the initiative to begin cleaning as well,” she said.
“The cleanup campaign was also meant to thank and give back different players who have been assisting the club since its days in Division One football until their top flight promotion. It’s always good to participate in such lifesaving programs. Those who did not manage to be there but had a will we thank you also for your morale support
“This is a first of many cleanups that we will carry out in Zvishavane this year.”
