Bringing hope to orphans

Dear Friends,

Happy Holidays from The Tekeshe Foundation! We would like to thank you for your support. Your donations will go a long way in helping us provide school fees and uniforms to orphans like Lovemore, a brave little boy I met on a trip home to Zimbabwe.

Lovemore was orphaned at the age of just 10 years old after both his parents succumbed to HIV/AIDS. After his parents died, Lovemore and his little brother Hebert went to live with their grandmother who is poor. To take care of his brother and grandmother, Lovemore had to drop out of school. Each day he started his morning by going to the township to beg for food. Sadly at only 10 years of age, Lovemore not only had to provide for his family but he also suffered from epilepsy that dangerously went untreated. Lovemore’s grandmother did not have the money to buy medicine or to take him to a doctor. With the help of the Tekeshe Foundation Lovemore’s life has changed. Lovemore is back in school, receiving food, school supplies and lifesaving medical care. 

Thanks again for helping Lovemore and Hebert and many other orphans like them.  

 

Best wishes,

Thelma
