Fraud Alert!!!
The Zimbabwe Red Cross Society wishes to distance itself from a social media post by an organisation called Work Type Home, advertising that the "Zimbabwe Red Crescent Society and International Red Cross" are offering a free online Nursing Technician Course.
We would like to emphasize to prospective students and the public in general that our organization is not affiliated to the aforementioned group and does not operate through proxies.
There is no organization called "Zimbabwe Red Crescent Society".
Currently, we do not offer any course online and do not have any training course called Nursing Technician on our catalogue.
We are dedicated to providing evidence-based training services in various sectors throughout Zimbabwe, which are delivered through our established and well branded training centers.
The Zimbabwe Red Cross assumes no responsibility or liability for any financial loss which will occur as a result of this misrepresentation.
We wish to advise members of the public that Red Cross emblems are protected from abuse under the Zimbabwe Red Cross Society Act [Chapter 17:08] and the Geneva Conventions Act [Chapter 11:06]. Subject to the legislative provisions, no person shall, without authority, use for any purpose whatsoever the Red Cross emblems and any person who contravenes these provisions shall be guilty of an offence and liable to prosecution.
For Zimbabwe Red Cross Society first aid and nurse aide training inquiries, kindly get in touch with the Communications and Corporate Affairs Manager on +263712 517 264, email:[email protected]
