THREE brothers with disabilities, who were left homeless after being chased away from their rural home in Mwenezi, have been accommodated by volunteer Mukai Chauruka in Chitungwiza.
She is now appealing for help to cover for their stay and the special requirements they need for their studies.
The relatives of Munyaradzi (23), Maxwell (21) and Simbarashe Chibida (9) had claimed their presence was a curse that brought bad luck to the family and area.
Chauruka, who directs the Mother Esther Trust charity, offered them a place to live near to their school.
The brothers require monthly donations to cover school fees, food, medication, fuel and uniforms and also require electric wheelchairs, music recording equipment and video games.
“Zimbabweans, your Mother Esther Trust is greeting you in the name of Jesus,” she said.
“Here are the three children, who were born physically crippled and they 100 percent need someone to lift them to and from their wheelchairs for everything they need, worse for Maxwell at school.
“Because of this, we have decided to house them here in Chitungwiza, but we are still afraid of the costs involved.
“So far, we managed to get US$600 out of the US$1 500 needed for them to return to Rutenga.
“We can only accommodate them in our Chitungwiza house if we can get some help for them because we cannot afford their food, school needs, medication and fuel to drive them to school daily.
“Maxwell needs school fees, uniforms, school bags, books and a simple smartphone for online studies. Munyaradzi, who plays mbira with Maxwell, needs a music recording system.”
