Young Zimbabwean Student’s Death in Poland Sparks Fundraiser to Bring Her Body Home
The sudden passing of a young Zimbabwean student, Zvikomborero Midzi, who was studying in Poland, has left her family and friends in shock and sadness. Zvikomborero, who was a bright and promising young woman with a passion for learning and a heart full of dreams, was loved and admired by those who knew her. Now, her family is seeking help to bring her body back to Zimbabwe for burial.
Fundraiser for Repatriation
The cost of repatriation is significant, and the family has created a fundraiser to help them cover the expenses. Anesu Chitembwe, a friend and former classmate of Zvikomborero, created the fundraiser just 20 hours ago, and it has already raised a significant amount. Anesu, who remembers Zvikomborero as a hardworking and dedicated student, writes on the fundraiser page, “Any contribution you can make towards this cause will be greatly appreciated. Your generosity will go a long way in helping us give Zvikomborero a dignified send-off and bring closure to her family and loved ones.”
The costs of repatriation include transportation of the body, embalming, documentation, and other associated expenses. The family is still calculating the exact amount needed to bring Zvikomborero’s body home, but they estimate that it will be around $15,000.
Support from the Community
The family’s fundraiser has received an outpouring of support from the community, with many people making donations and sharing the fundraiser on social media. Zvikomborero’s former school, which she attended in Zimbabwe, also shared a message of condolence and support for her family. “Zvikomborero was a brilliant student who had a bright future ahead of her,” the school’s message read. “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.”
The family is grateful for the support they have received and are asking for continued prayers and donations as they work to bring Zvikomborero’s body home. “We want to give our daughter a dignified send-off,” her father said. “Any help we can get is greatly appreciated.”
