Three huts, built less than thirty feet away from a busy highway in Zimbabwe, are home to the Vheremu siblings. Rebecca, 11, Zvadiwanashe, 9, and Primrose, 7, live with their aunt who they refer to as their mother. Unfortunately, their aunt is rarely home, leaving eleven-year-old Rebecca to fill the motherly role for her siblings. She fetches firewood, water, does all the cooking and makes sure that the little ones are tucked in at night.
However, it’s not just Rebecca’s heavy workload that’s an issue. The location of their huts mean these two girls and their brother are easy prey for truck drivers and those who kidnap children for charms and abuse.
Praise the Lord the children’s immediate needs are being taken care of by VisionTrust. They are attending school while receiving medical care and food. The village headman, the councilor, and the school authorities have also been engaged in the situation to help these children.
The Vheremu siblings are just three of almost two hundred children we help in Zimbabwe. Please consider joining us in providing a better life for these children through sponsorship.
