Often neglected and forgotten, there is a special group of people in the society, that no longer has or never had, the opportunity of experiencing the love of a family and loved ones. The ups and downs of life have treated them differently, and they rely on the care of well-wishers and institutions – the destitute.
Ruth Emmanuel-Makandiwa has made it her mission to become the family that these people need and share the love of God with them, most importantly, in trying times like the COVID-19 pandemic. In celebrating her birthday, she sent the Agape Family Care team on the 4th of September 2021 to Bako Redonhodzo; a home for the elderly that is found in the high density area of Highfields.
The AFC team delivered a donation, directly from Ruth Emmanuel-Makandiwa’s heart, to the elderly people of Bako Redonhodzo.
