VULNERABLE children, including orphans and children with disabilities from Epworth, at the weekend smiled all the way home after receiving early Christmas gifts from Christ Embassy Church.
The kids were given clothes and food hampers for the Christmas festivity as a way of reminding them that they were loved.
Speaking to this Zim Morning Post, Chinongerwa said the initiative came after realising that most children in Epworth had no one to look to for assistance them during this festive season.
“After realising that our vulnerable children in this community have no one to look to this festive season, I organised with Christ Embassy Church for an early Christmas shower for them.”
More than 1 000 children from Ward 1 took home with them clothes and food hampers.
Speaking to this publication, Adelaide Gudza from Christ Embassy Church said they were thrilled to be making a difference in the lives of many children in the community.
“We came here to change lives and this came after realising that there are many children who do not have a roof over their head or clothing because they are either disabled or had lost their parents,” Gudza said.
She further said the Christmas presents were just a small portion for what the church was planning for the vulnerable children in the community.
“This is part of the bigger Inner City Mission project. Inner City Mission runs charity projects all over the world, and I can say this is the beginning of such programmes in Epworth,” Gudza concluded.
