Fun galore for underprivileged children

HARARE - Over 500 children living with disabilities and their caregivers from around Harare had a fun day at Gateway Primary School last week.

The party, organised by Miracle Missions Trust and sponsored by G-Tel, is the first of many lined up this year.

Sharon Hook, a spokesperson for Miracle Missions Trust, said her organisation was proud to be associated with uplifting the lives of the children. “We have been hosting Christmas parties for children from different homes for a couple of years now,” said Hook. “Last year, we had about 6 000 presents distributed to the communities.

It is all about making communities happy. This is the first party we have organised specifically for children living with disabilities and it is being sponsored by G-Tel.

“The main thrust is to really show the children some love and bring them together to make them feel special.”

Hook also praised the various people who are contributing to their programmes.

“Right now, there are 130 volunteers who have come for this fun day, it’s all about volunteering and supporting vulnerable communities,” she said.  G-Tel’s head of sales and marketing, Robert Gonye said his company was proud to have contributed to the party for the children living with disabilities.

“We are working with Miracle Missions and we started working with them last year where we held a Christmas party for the less privileged children.

“Miracle Missions has been running such a programme for the past couple of years,” said Gonye.

“We funded the party, which was filled with entertainment for children living with disabilities.

“They rarely get the chance to really have a good time like this,” he said.
