In spite of planned development and special provision for accelerated socio-economic development of neglected/disadvantaged sections, the issue of orphan, semi orphan and street children is not properly addressed. In our project area many Orphan, Semi Orphan and Street Children are found. Due to the Deaths of HIV/AIDS affected persons, Re-marriage of Deserted / Widowed / Divorce women, Absence of love and security in the families, Family disputes, Unwanted pregnancy of Trafficking / Sexually exploited girls; these orphan and street children are left without care and support. These children are involved in rag picking; pick pocketing and participating in anti social, criminal activities. Therefore, we envisage mainstreaming these children in the national building by providing care, support and protection.
The festive season is a time to be happy, feast and enjoy with family. We all expect love and warmth around this period, however there are children out there who never get to anticipate Christmas. These children feel forgotten and often have no food, clothes or anyone to celebrate Christmas with. This campaign seeks to provide a better, warm and vibrant Christmas for the Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC'S) in Mashonaland Central. Imagine the smiles on these young faces as boys and girls get to have a beautiful festive season this year. These children deserve clothing, food and love like any other child who has a complete family. We have been identifying orphans & street children, pre-viewing, counseling & providing referrals to social services and Msasa. The funds will serve to carter for these children's 2019 Christmas. Small Actions x Lots Of People =Big SMILES (CHANGE). Lets put some smiles on the faces of these young boys and girls, Every donation counts and will go a long way in attaining foodstuffs and various items that they may need.
