The urban slum community of Sakubva in Zimbabwe is a difficult place to be. In July this year 50 more children who were identified as the most vulnerable were added to the care of Sakubva Christian Caring Trust – a Community Based Organisation of local volunteers who daily and care holistically for children in their own community. It is families like these who will benefit from the Christ-like care they receive.
When Nicholas* was just five years old, both of his parents tragically died in the same year, leaving him in the care of an uncle. His uncle was emotionally and physically abusive but with no one else to turn to, Nicholas was trapped in his home. His uncle refused to pay school fees so Nicholas was unable to attend school. Nicholas’ Aunt Mildred* visited the family and was appalled by Nicholas’ physical and emotional state.
