The Mangwende Orphan Care Trust – is a locally driven project which seeks to reverse family disintegration resulting from the devastating effects of HIV/AIDS, poverty and diseases consequently leading to countless numbers of orphans and child headed families.
The project is thus driven by the community itself where the project coordinator and board meet with local community leadership to ascertain their needs and work to facilitate provision of those needs.
The project is a non-denominational and non-governmental charity project which has no formal relationship with any grouping, but seeks to interact with all churches as well as bodies and individuals who share the same vision.
It will help children regardless of race, color, religion or sex especially in areas of providing education, health care, counseling, supplementary feeding, spiritual and moral guidance and life survival skills.

Evans has welcomed Robin Woolner from the US at the beginning of September 2019.

He helped to set up tree nurseries and joined Evans on his visits to members of the community, too.
We are delighted to have so committed people supporting our work from around the world!

However, the threat is even greater in places where health provision is patchy, difficult to access and where the fundamentals of life have been ravaged by conflict, climate change and ecological breakdown. Where life-saving resources like clean water, soap, medicines and related equipment – things we normally take for granted in the UK – are in short supply.Continue reading “What do you do when life is on the line? – The Zimbabwean tragedy that reflects all our failings”
