The Charity Projects, an international non- governmental organization is determined to launch a full implementation of Mental Health and Disability Project. CEO and Founder Mark Chunga revealed.
The Project will take place in Zimbabwe and other countries where The Charity Projects will be operating.
This will be the first time the Project will have a full implementation in the country.
Zimbabwe is currently grappling challenges of assisting children affected by neurological disorders. The condition affects new borns if they remain unattended.
Against this background, The Charity Projects will be establishing a Day Care Centre and the first Children’s hospital in the country. This will be crucial in assisting children affected by neurological disorders.
“We have plans to secure land so that we establish a Day Care Centre and the first Children’s Hospital as part of our plans to move towards a full implementation of Mental Health and Disability project,” Chunga said.
Chunga also announced the newly found Charity Projects Board that is expected to play the advisory role going into the future.
“The charity Projects team welcomed the new diverse advisory board members both local and internationally:
Gift Samunderu , Petty Musekiwa, Lucky Ngoshi, Lorraine Chitsike , Selam Tegegn , Nxabisa Ntoni , Agripa Ncube. The advisory board will assist and support the board in implementing The Charity Projects initiatives.”
The Charity Projects team continues to provide the families, primary care givers and the community with the information and tools to better support the person in their life with mental health disabilities, and themselves. It has also become a norm to host an annual luncheon where children will be receiving gifts such as clothes, food hampers and wheel chairs.
“The Charity Projects hosted another Christmas Luncheon at Highfields Methodist Church, Zimbabwe. The families of the clients where treated to music and games for the children followed by Christmas gifts. Gifts included wheelchairs, food hampers and clothing for the children.As the founder believes every family deserves a merry Christmas.”
The Charity Projects clients are in desperate need of food, diagnosis and other essential areas.
