Imagine childhood in a place where two of every ten adults and 180,000 children are HIV positive. Where more than a million children are growing up without parents because AIDS has wiped out most of their generation. Where hospitals operate with few doctors, urban neighborhoods suffer weeks without water or electricity, and unemployment tops 90 percent.
Then imagine those children finding a new home where their well-being is paramount, their creativity sparked and their futures enhanced with a wide range of skills. That’s what Zimkids Orphan Trust has provided for more than 1,000 children on the toughest streets in Zimbabwe .
