Isaiah's Home of Love:
Our first assignment is to Isaiah's Home of Love (Umuzi Wothando). This home was established to assist abandoned babies, orphans and vulnerable children in desperate need of care. The babies are lovingly cared for, whist the home administrators also help to facilitate fostering and adoption. This babie's home currently cares for 25 children aged between newborn to five years old.
Operational costs are their biggest financial challenges, and these are necessary in order to provide good quality care for the children, 24 hours a day, at a ratio of 1 adult to 3 babies. The local community in Bulawayo has been a great help in donating clothing and food, but the main financial struggles are for things such as school fees for the children, the cargivers remuneration, hydro and other utility bills. Elementary school fees average about $180 per term. The average caregiver makes approximately $260 a month - that's almost what many of us spend on groceries a week! Hydro and utilities combined come close to $500 a month.
I had the privilege of visiting the home during my one of my recent trips to Zimbabwe. Inspired by Blake Mycoskie , I felt a burning desire to Start Something that Matters. With your help, I would like to help the team at Isaiah's Home of Love to meet some of their monthly obligations in order to keep the home running smoothly. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can change and affect the lives of these babies for the good!
