Mugwagwa Elderly Foundation Trust
Over the past two decades (1998 to 2019) working as a registered nurse in various clinics and Hospitals within the regions of Zimbabwe, the Founder of Meft Mrs Abigail Mugwagwa discovered that many of the elderly patients suffering from chronic conditions were defaulting on their treatments due to financial and logistical deficiencies. Mrs. Mugwagwa further discovered that the overwhelming reason for this was because most of the drugs prescribed to them were found only in private pharmacies. The cost and acquisition of these drugs proved prohibitive to these senior citizens, due to their low incomes, or lack or income, and their proximity to the nearest pharmacy. Mrs. Mugwagwa took it upon herself to personally assist a few elderly patients by purchasing these drugs, for them, from the private pharmacies. In several cases she would even deliver the drugs to those Senior citizens who were not mobile enough to collect. These noble deeds culminated in the birth and formation of Mugwagwa Elderly Foundation Trust.
