Nesisa Mpofu, BCC spokesperson, made the revelations during a risk management workshop that started on Wednesday to update stakeholders on the impact of water shortages. She said Unicef and World Vision, a non-governmental organisation, were supporting water conservation awareness campaigns in the city.
Various stakeholders such as residents’ association representatives, health workers and representatives of the disabled, took part at the workshop.
“We have been helped by sponsors such as Edgars, TelOne and one insurance company that have provided T-shirts and promotional materials for the Blue Monday campaign,” Mpofu said.
An official from World Vision, Tendai Godzi, said the organisation supported the water shortage awareness campaign.
