The Monitor :: ZCC Donate To Gamodubu Trust Children








Despite being a cold and windy on Saturday morning, Mogotlo Zion Christian Church (ZCC) members from Molepolole gathered at the centre to embrace the children with warmth and love.

Gamodubu Child Care Trust is a centre for orphaned and vulnerable children who are mostly also living with HIV/AIDS. The centre offers an out of school program that includes but is not limited to feeding and also ensuring the children take their medication and have access to regular check-ups.

According to ZCC pastor Mareledi Mhaladi, the church started being concerned about the wellbeing of the children in the centre and its founder Shirley Madikwe after seeing her good deeds in the local television. He said after hearing of how Madikwe was struggling to keep the centre running singlehandedly, the church decided to come up with ways to help her keep the ship afloat.  “We realised that Madikwe could not overcome those difficulties alone and therefore we decided to intervene. The job that this woman is doing is commendable as she is solely taking care of these children and is doing that from the bottom of her heart. Our church members found it fit to give back to the community by donating whatever

we could to see these children smiling,” he said.

Mhaladi added that his church members bought food, clothing, toiletries and toys so that they could see the children happy. He said as a compassionate nation, the church also found it fit to fulfill that 2016 pillar of a caring and compassionate nation, as it was relevant to what is written in the Bible.

“This event is part of BOT50 celebrations. We are gathered here to shower these innocent souls with love, do their laundry and cook them lunch. We are going to spend this day with them. However, that is not all as we have realiSed that since the establishment of a landfill in this village, it is manifested with litter that comes from it and therefore we will be picking up litter as we know it poses a health hazard,” Mhaladi added. Madikwe, who was evidently thrilled by the good gesture, told the church that the centre was accommodating a number of children from neighbouring villages such as Gakuto, Gakgatlha and others who had to walk about 12 kilometers to and from school everyday. She added that she also accommodated children whose parents were facing various life challenges.
