The First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa through her angel of hope foundation is continuing with her philanthropic work which saw her coming to the rescue of 100 children at the Newstart Orphanage and Children’s Home in Harare, where she donated foodstuffs, as well as blankets, this Thursday.
The angelic voices of the Newstart Orphanage and Children’s Home Choir as written in the scriptures, 1 John 4 verse 4 which says, “you dear children, are from God and have overcome them because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world”.
Located along Amalinda Road in Glen View, Newstart Orphanage and Children’s home is providing shelter and a decent upbringing to 100 orphans and abandoned babies.
The centre which was founded by Dr and Mrs Salim Farag of the Seventh Day Adventist church has not been spared from the hardships facing the country as most well-wishers are no longer able to assist the underprivileged.
The office of the First Lady and Angel of Hope Foundation are working tirelessly to ease the burden for the vulnerable who are also bearing the brunt of hardships brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa through her foundation mobilised an assortment of food stuff comprising basic commodities such as sugar, cooking oil, soap, rice and blankets among other goods for the orphanage.
In a speech read on her behalf by Angel of Hope Foundation board member Mrs Rachel Nield-Geranois, the First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa said now is the time to show the world that Zimbabweans are united in their resolve to fight the pandemic.
“As we focus on material needs let us not forget to pray for the spiritual needs of the nation. Pastors and reverends should pray for the nation for people to see the love of God even in these difficult times. Let us pray for our health workers and for other front-line workers in the fight against COVID-19,” she said.
President of the east Zimbabwe union conference of the seventh day Adventist church pastor Godfrey Musara and Newstart orphanage and children’s home deputy headmistress ms Florence Chiremba thanked the first lady for the work she is doing around the country, remembering the needy and the vulnerable.
AFM in Zimbabwe president Reverend Amon Madawo and his wife, Newstart orphanage and children’s home board member Mrs Abigirl Makono and seventh day Adventist leadership, among others, attended the handover ceremony.
