It was an exciting moment for more than 50 children at Kudavana Children’s Home in Mutare South on Saturday evening when Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Senator Monica Mutsvangwa handed over various foodstuffs to the facility.
It was indeed a joyous occasion this Saturday when Senator Monica Mutsvangwa handed over various foodstuffs to Kudavana Children’s Home in Mutare South, a gesture well appreciated by the over 50 orphans housed at the facility.
Kudavana Children’s Home administrator Davis Mundirirwa thanked Senator Mutsvangwa for the timely intervention, but, however, appealed for more resources to cater for the facility.
“As you can note the children are very happy for the generosity displayed here by Senator Mutsvangwa. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected normal economic channels which generally cater for the upkeep of this facility so our immediate need, for now, is food. We also need a piece of land so that we can be self-sufficient and grow our own food. The camp is growing and currently, we have already exceeded our carrying capacity…..,” said Davis Mundirirwa, Kudavana Children’s Home, Administrator
Handing over the groceries, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa expressed gratitude to all those responding to the President’s call to assist in any way possible in the fight against Covid-19 and last year’s Cyclone Idai disaster.
“Last year we were faced with the Cyclone Idai disaster and we saw a positive response to the calamity and similarly we are seeing yet another heartfelt response to Covid-19 pandemic and this is exactly what President Emmerson Mnangagwa is encouraging. Nothing is too little, every donation, every hand out is a drop in the bucket and together we will fill it. So we still call for such generosity we are receiving from individuals, corporates, and international development partners and even from the diaspora…. ,” said Senator Monica Mutsvangwa who represents Chimanimani, Zimunya and Marange & Min of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services.
Kudavana Children’s Home houses more than 50 orphans, with the majority under the age of 15.
Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Senator Mutsvangwa, who was accompanied by Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa, also handed over groceries to 50 families from Chimanimani’s Cyclone Idai ravaged communities.
