In the summer of 2018, WBCL listeners raised $70,000 to build a home for orphaned and vulnerable children in Mutoko, Zimbabwe. The home has now been built and 4 children and a married couple as caregivers are currently living there, and they are waiting for 5 more children to be placed soon by the social workers.
Below is a video showing the home and the children already placed in it. Living in a home like this with a small group of children and house parents allows these kids to grow up in a Christian family-like atmosphere. It gives them a more normal upbringing than living in a traditional orphanage with many children housed together.
“The most vulnerable of the vulnerable is who is being placed in this home. Children who have been abandon and likely would be sold into child trafficking are now given a hope and future. What I love most about this outreach is that it’s not just these ten kids we’re helping, this home will go on for generations as a safe place for many more children in the future. It’s a home built with love by the generosity of the WBCL listening family” – Tiffany Schortgen, Promotions Director
