THE Zimbabwe Defence Forces will provide free medical assistance to communities around the country and also hand over projects built by the army as part of the organisation’s Community Assistance Programme.
The ZDF Community Assistance Programme is done every year ahead of the Heroes and Zimbabwe Defence Forces days.
