Campaign Story

Matthew Rusike Children’s Home (MRCH) was founded by the late Reverend Matthew Jacha Rusike in 1950 when he was Superintendent Minister of the Methodist Church. He took in orphans and abandoned children into his own home for care out of love. The MRCH was later established at its current location in Epworth Mission, 15 kilometres outside Harare in 1961 when the Methodist Church assumed responsibility over its affairs. The institution was then registered in 1968 as the African Children’s Home in terms of welfare organizations Act (W/0 463/68). The home is caring for homeless, orphaned, displaced, abandoned, abused and deprived children from birth to 18 years of age. Currently the home operates a multifaceted programme that combines residential care and community-based orphan care initiatives in response to the growing number of children in need of care. It is a registered PVO under the PVO Act.
