Wash is a joint initiative between the local authority and the United States Agency for International Development.
The project is being carried out in Mzilikazi, Makokoba and Njube suburbs.
Speaking at the handover ceremony at McDonald Hall in Mzilikazi, CRS spokesperson Timothy Bishop said his organisation had procured materials for the repair of a public toilet behind Achulu Flats in Makokoba.
“CRS has set up water tank bases at Mzilikazi, Lobengula and Sobukazi schools and established 10 community health clubs,” he said.
The organisation said it had also sourced and distributed 700 water storage containers under the programme.
Speaking during the same occasion, town clerk Middleton Nyoni commended CRS for the gesture.
“We thank the CRS and the dedication of the Bulawayo health promoters for their efforts to make sure that Bulawayo is clean,” he said.
“I therefore urge the people of Bulawayo to ensure that clean-up campaigns are many for the coming year so that it can be an example to other generations.”
