First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa, who doubles as the ambassador of Health and
Child Care, together with the ministry of Social Welfare are working towards the
revamping of Chambuta Children’s Home into a rehabilitation centre for children
who live in the streets.

The
First Lady, through her Angel of Hope Foundation, is working with various
municipalities and town councils towards improving Chambuta Children’s Home
into a state of art rehabilitation centre aimed at improving livelihoods for
children living in the streets.

Chambuta
Children’s home is currently housing 56 children, most of them from Harare.

During
her three days visit to Chambuta Children’s Home recently, the First Lady said she was
working towards rehabilitating the children’s home into a Vocational Training
Centre, where talent will be identified before transferring kids to their
responsible areas.

“My
greater wish is to transform Chambuta Children’s Home into a rehabilitation
centre for children living in the street across the country’s provinces in
order for them to realise their future dreams.

“We
came here to see the welfare of our children whom we brought here from
different towns across the country where they were living in the streets. This
is a government institution which does not select types of people to be
accommodated here.

“Children
living in the streets encounter different forms of abuses because they have no
one to look after their welfare. These children no longer have their future
expectations and they are entitled to free health services, food, clothes and
education which they are going to be given here,” said the First Lady.

Various
city councils and municipalities were given mandates to refurbish and decorate
each house, which is going to be named after their city.
