[ ‘SHARE’ Nov-Dec 2013 – Life Impacting Life ] STEP INTO THE WORLD
When her mother passed away twelve years ago, Sharmaine went to live with her grandmother. Sad and lonely, Sharmaine could not see a future. Education is vital to getting any job but her aged grandmother could not afford the school fees.
In 1987, a group of Zimbabwean Christians set up Family AIDS Caring Trust (FACT), regularly distributing food and daily necessities to HIV/AIDS-affected families, and sponsoring HIV/AIDS orphans in their education. Sharmaine says gratefully, ‘FACT has been sponsoring me since second grade and I will soon finish secondary school; I hope to go to university next year and then become a lawyer.’
FACT also holds small groups teaching grandparents how to look after HIV/AIDS orphans, or giving children emotional and spiritual nurturing. ‘I am not lonely anymore because many here have similar experiences and we learn to support each other.’ Sharmaine hopes to help other orphans in the future.
FACT is a partner of CEDAR’s ‘Join Hands Join Hearts’ Children Ministry Scheme; we invite you to be a supporter of this Scheme and enable impoverished children live in hope.
