It was an emotional moment when well wishers handed over a new home to a 92-year-old granny, Violet Zvavamwe from Chikomba East constituency, whose home was destroyed by the incessant rains that hit the country earlier this year.

The going has never been easy for Gogo Zvavamwe who has been a widow since 2008 when her husband succumbed to cholera.

Gogo Zvavamwe severed her leg after she suffered a fall at her home, leaving her unable to walk for the past four years.

As if that was not enough, the El Nino induced floods that hit the country earlier this year destroyed her home, leaving her with no choice but to share the same hut with her 65 year old son who is also disabled.

Upon realising the plight of the Zvavamwe family, Orphans Supporting Association Coordinating Director of Reaction, Mr Forbes Chikobvu, who hails from the same constituency, bought clutches for both Gogo Zvavamwe and her son and mobilised resources to repair her home.

Gogo Zvavamwe and her neighbours could not hide their joy as they recalled the sad story.

The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cde Edgar Mbwembwe who is the legislator for Chikomba constituency, graced the event and reiterated the need for people to plough back to the community.

There are many such cases of people like Gogo Zvavamwe in society who are lonely and socially isolated, deserving a helping hand and in dire need of a second chance in life.
