By Elizabeth Nyaguyo


Murewa …..Villagers living and around Murehwa District have applauded the services that are being offered at Heather Chimoga Orphanage Clinic (HCOC)




Orphans, people living positively with HIV and vulnerable children are being given nutritional food stuffs every month.






Apart, from providing food hampers to disadvantaged children the clinic also caters for all the school expenses from primary to tertiary level.




In an interview with one of the beneficiaries Renica Nyamurima during a media tour organized by NAC in Mashonaland East province she said that she is excited with services being offered Heather Chimoga Orphanage Clinic.



“I would like to thank the sponsors of this clinic because they helped me after I was given a child who was only 21hours after birth when the mother passed on, she was my sister’s child who passed away.




“Since then they were the only people who were helping me until now the child is five years old, they are the ones who are paying and taking care of the school fees and food for the child,” said Renica.




Another man who said that he is widower was grateful saying all his children are being taken care by HCOC, his wife has since died.





“My wife died in the 20th of March 2020 and the health practitioners at HCOC come and witnessed the situation I was in living with three children all by myself that is when they started providing food and fees for my children.





“As for me now I do not feel the pain of losing her that much because HCOC is always there and taking care of the children playing the motherly role.





“At times they come to my place so as to sit and talk to my children so that they forget about the death of their mother,” said Christopher Mushonga.





Speaking to another resident she said that she is happy with the developments and the effort that the clinic is putting in making sure those receiving medical care gets full support.




” A new ambulance has been bought for our children to go for check-ups to see their viral loads in Harare and I do not pay anything related to bus fare.





“We have new phones that the HCOC bought for us so that they call to check up on the children or us calling informing them about the problems we might be encountering with the children,” said one source who refused to be identified.
