Dear Partners and Friends of Chiedza Child Care Centre!
Hoping to find you safe!
Before I update you on what has been happening in the past few months, I want to start by saying a BIG THANK YOU for your continued support even when your resources where constrained during this COVID-19 pandemic. It is a time that we thought you would stop supporting us as other emerging needs would top your list especially your health and safety, but you remained resolute to your commitment to support our cause.
Schools in Zimbabwe closed in March 2020 due to COVID-19 and we also closed our out of school study group for children out of school. As they would come to school, we would support them with meals through the soup kitchen. Closure of schools meant no more feeding for these children. Initially we re-opened the soup kitchen to feed those that were able to come but we later closed it again due to the heightened risk of COVID-19 infection. We knew that the families would struggle to feed those children. We then changed the strategy and began focusing on providing dry food packs to the families instead of preparing meals for the children. We were distributing food to 50 families on average per month, reaching to 250 people in those families (5 members per family on average). We achieved all this through your unwavering support. Thank you. We hope schools will re-open as planned before end of year and that COVID-19 will ease off for the safety of children and everyone else.
Kindly keep supporting our cause as we want resources for preparation of re-openig of our out of school study group, food, stationery, uniforms, volunteer stipends and school fees. Kindly follow and like us on our Facebook https://www.facebook.com/chiedzachildcarecentre
