Commenting on the increase of Pro Bono clients, work and partnerships, Real Estate associate and Zimbabwe Pro Bono Coordinator Christabel Shava said:
"Sometimes the people who are on the frontlines doing hard work for our neediest of neighbours and communities need help only lawyers can give. It is such an honour to advise them and pass down the goodwill along the chain"
