Campaign Story

Emthunzini Wethemba children’s Home, which translates as “Shelter of Hope,” is located less than 2 km north of Bulawayo City Centre along Victoria Falls Road, it sits adjacent to the Mpilo Hospital OI clinic. The children who live at the orphanage come to the home from Bulawayo’s social welfare department, from the streets of Bulawayo, or from the Mpilo Hospital Opportunistic Infections clinic when the hospital learns that a child has lost his or her parents or caregivers or who are deemed children in need of care. The Home is a non-profit organisation with registration No WO10/92. It is located at Stand No 6900 Old Vic Falls Road, opposite Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo. It was founded in 1992 by Rev David and Margaret Ndoda.

The home has been providing shelter for former street kids and children in difficult circumstances. Currently it provides care and support to 18 orphan and vulnerable children from age five to age 18. It has a Home Board that provides Christian leadership and governance with the director and the staff who provide care and support to the children. Apart from provision of basic needs, the Home assists the children unpack their emotional bags to gain psycho-social well-being through counselling and psycho-social support.
