Zimbabwe

Mustard Seed Communities was established in Zimbabwe in July 2002 to assist with the care of children affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Since its inception, MSC Zimbabwe developed a multitude of programs serving children and families throughout Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second largest city. MSC Zimbabwe runs three residential care facilities for children with disabilities as well as those orphaned by or infected with HIV/AIDS, providing homes to more than 55 children. Additionally, we maintain four nutrition programs feeding over 500 children a day, three preschools, a training centre called Potter’s House, substantial farming programs, a chapel and a health clinic.

Children Affected by HIV/AIDS

Zimbabwe_1_resizeIn Zimbabwe, the number of children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and the ensuing number of child-headed households are perpetually on the rise. As a result, the need for housing and medical care for these children continues to grow. The Freedom Home, located on the main property in Woodville, cares for twenty-nine children affected by HIV/AIDS. Our aim is to provide them with the opportunity to live their lives under proper care and ensure that they have access to the best possible social, physical, medical and educational services. Our second home for this population of children, Generosity, is located in the north end of Bulawayo and provides a family setting for children who are living with HIV/AIDS
