The Business Coalition Council Emergency Taskforce (BCCET) is a group of Business Sector Interest Groups that are driving initiatives to try and minimise the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Zambia by: assisting the Government with economic proposals; sourcing funding for essential medical items; a media campaign to increase sanitary awareness throughout the country; and provide food and sustenance for the vulnerable members of the local community.
Our aim is to help businesses and households navigate through economic distress in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and post-pandemic period to safeguard the employment of its citizens. Our responsibilities as a committee are: to seek donations; materials; provide technical expertise; and facilitate donations in kind that will assist our fight against COVID-19.
We stand as one in our ability to engage and forge a united front to try and protect Zambian lives, businesses and households from the impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
In order to execute our initiatives we created the Zambia COVID-19 Fund. The fund is managed by the Zambian Institute of Chartered Accountants (ZICA).
