At Bread and Water for Africa® our primary concern is for children who have been orphaned or left destitute and have nowhere else to turn but to our partners in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Zambia who take them them in and consider them as if their own children.
Among them is little Kupakwashe who was found by government authorities in Zimbabwe begging on the street for food and who was determined to be mentally challenged and uncommunicative.
Unable to get any more from him than his first name, he was brought to the Lerato Children’s Village in Zimbabwe to stay in the hopes that eventually someone would report him missing.
Tragically, no one came forward and the boy, estimated to be 11-years-old, is one of the countless “miracle” children you have helped save from an uncertain — to say the least — future.
It is the children such as Kaupakwashe who bear the brunt of being undernourished — actually starving — during the most important years of their lives as their bodies and minds need healthy foods for their bodies and minds to grow and develop.
At Bread and Water for Africa®, as we always have, we are desperately trying to help as many children like Kaupawashe as possible providing support to our partners including the Lerato Children’s Village, the Kabwata Orphanage and Transit Centre in Zambia and the Lewa Children’s Home in Kenya to enable those in their care grow and develop.
