The Vasikana ve Chitungwiza fund raising dinner is all set for May 27 at the Dunstable Leisure centre.
The Vasikana Ve Chitungwiza is a charitable organisation formed by Linda Kute and women in United the Kingdom driven by making a difference back home in Zimbabwe.
Chitungwiza is the largest poor high density suburb in Zimbabwe divided into 3 townships St Mary’s, Zengeza and Seke. There is only one main hospital named Chitungwiza Hospital located in Zengeza 4. Linda Kute the founder got a desire to help the less privileged members of the society.
“I grew up in the ghetto with sad stories day by day in Zengeza 3” said Kute.
“In 2014 I received an urgent appeal from Chitungwiza regarding the 3 boys abandoned at my mother-in-law’s door step. The boys namely Alex, Adrian and Adrin from same mother were left by the gate with nothing whatsoever. When l heard the story it kept me awake for so many days and nights. I could not think of anything other than providing them with food by sending the little money from my own pocket”.
“I initially used to find it hard to share the 3 boys’ story with anyone here in the UK until one day l approached Hannah, one of my white friends and told her this burning issue. To my surprise, she organised a shoes and clothes collection, items which the boys desperately need, from her friends and other well-wishers. After the collection, she handed over a generous quantity of items for which I again used some my own meagre income to send the stuff straight to Chitungwiza. The boys received the gifts just before Christmas and from their personal testimonies, they had the best Christmas ever!!”
“This reawakened and fired the desire in me to use the charitable route to provide not only for these boys, but many, many others in similar predicaments. For that reason, on the 27th of May 2017 we are will hold a Dinner Dance Fundraising Gala in Dunstable to raise money for school fees for the 3 boys and also to sink some boreholes in 3 townships St Marys, Seke, Zengeza and our main hospital Chipatara che Chitungwiza to help alleviate water problem” added Kute.
