“Beat the Winter Blahs” Drive thru – Take out Supper
March 6 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Mission Zimbabwe Project will be holding a “Beat the Winter Blahs” drive thru – take out supper on Saturday, March 6th to benefit the Village of Hope and Vimbainesu Children’s Home in Zimbabwe. Suppers can be picked up between 5:00 and 7:00 pm. In order to follow Covid19 guidelines, the supper will be take-out with no one having to even leave their cars for pick up. The supper will feature smoked ham, cheesy potatoes, mixed vegetables, cole slaw, dinner role, and a special dessert. This is a great opportunity to reach out to friends and neighbours who are living in isolation or shut-in due to Covid restrictions and to deliver to them a special supper and at the same time support the children in Zimbabwe.
This has been a challenging year for all charities due to the Covid 19 restrictions. Mission Zimbabwe has been blessed by the compassion and generosity of our local community. This supper will be the first fund raising event for Mission Zimbabwe in 2021 and the proceeds will allow us to continue to financially support the children and families in Zimbabwe during 2021.
Tickets for the event are $20.00 and can be purchased online by going to hopecc.ca and clicking on the “Beat the Winter Blahs” Supper button or by contacting Barry Mutrie at 519-270-4461 or Hope Community Church at 519-364-5668.
The VILLAGE OF HOPE (VOH) in Harare continues to meet the needs of the children and local community for safety, nutrition and education during the Covid19 crisis. Although we were not able to send a team during 2020, our community generously donated close to $20,000 and these funds have enabled the VOH to provide distributions of Hope Care Packs during the lockdown. These packs provide families with food, hygiene items and Covid masks.
The school located on the grounds with classes for preschool to Grade 11, presently has over 600 students and will be re-opening in the near future.. There are close to 80 orphans being cared for in the nine children’s homes and the medical clinic on the grounds is providing much needed health care for the children and community around the Village of Hope.
In addition, the Mission Zimbabwe Project provides financial support for another orphanage in rural Zimbabwe called Vimbainesu Children’s Home. There are over fifty orphans at Vimbainesu and through the support of the Mission Zimbabwe Project, these children are receiving food, educational support and assistance for revenue generating projects.
