“Our Mimosa operation has recently taken steps to mitigate the effects of Covid-19 on frontline staff, through donating food hampers and PPE to nurses, doctors and other health practitioners in Zvishavane and Mberengwa districts of Zimbabwe,” Implats said.
Also recently, Implats owned platinum miner, Zimplats partnered with the Mhondoro Ngezi Rural District Council (MNRDC) to construct a COVID-19 isolation centre, with Zimplats donating the furniture and equipment valued at US$43 000.
