October 20, 2018 will be a memorable day for children and staff at Shungu Dzavana Trust Children’s Home who received goodies from the United Methodist Church Harare East District Cluster 3. The cluster is made up of United Methodist churches in Hatfield, Msasa Park, Prospect and Cranborne. It was a touching moment when children at the center recited poems and sang songs welcoming the church entourage. The church donated groceries, stationery and gas worth $1000. Leaders from cluster 3, who included Reverend Joseph Bonga, Reverend John Makaniko and Reverend Noah Chikuni took turns to applaud the great work done at Shungu Dzevana Trust Children’s Home particularly the center’s founder and director Sister Mercy Mutyambizi for creating a conducive and safe place for children. The center is home to 437 children, with 68 residing there while the rest are staying with foster parents and families throughout the country. Among the students staying at the center, seven are at Catholic University, four are at Midlands State University, three at Chinhoyi University of Technology, three at Bindura University, one at National University of Science and technology, four at University of Zimbabwe.
