This little town 100 miles south of Mutare, set amongst mountains and tea estates, tends to get forgotten. Here we support youngsters who are cared for by the local Anglican church. All have mothers but no fathers, and their mothers can’t support them.

All the children so far are doing well in school. Munyaradzi, from an appalling  background, has worked his way, always at the top of the class through primary school. Liberty, living with his grandmother revealed a delightfully cheeky personality once we started feeding him properly. Rejoice and Brenda have lovely sparkling personalities.

50 miles away is the Tongogara Refugee Camp, where most people are from the Congo. There is an Anglican church there and we have paid for a few of their children to go boarding school to get them out of that depressing environment. We would like to work more with the children in the camp but at the moment lack resources to do much.
