PRISON warden, Patience Muchineripi, who gave birth to four bouncing babies last year, has thanked the Twins Association of Zimbabwe (TAZI), which is helping her to maintain her babies.
Patience gave birth to three boys and one girl.
Speaking to H-Metro, at a workshop that was held under the Sustainable Development Goals by the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, together with UN Zimbabwe, she said that life has become easier with the aid she was receiving from TAZI.
“I live in Kwekwe, but thanks to TAZI that brought me here to meet others like me. At home I have two maids who look after the babies because a single maid cannot manage the crew.
“Since day one, TAZI has been with me as they provided children’s milk, blankets and even groceries for my family because I was not able to work.
“I just wanted to thank them and encourage other mothers of twins to come forward and register their babies so that they can benefit from that organisation and even link with other donors,” said Patience.
Some members of the TAZI, Rufaro and Mufaro Maziofa, who are twins, said that it was a privilege for the organisation to help the less privileged.
“We send individuals in societies to get information about mothers of twins or children who are disadvantaged so that we can help them with the little TAZI gets.
“We can give them loans so that they can do projects like keeping chickens so that they can push back the frontiers of poverty,” said the twins.
They added that due to poverty, some twins were forced to drop out of school and, as TAZI, they went to negotiate with the schools so that the children could go back to school.
