A society which looks after 17 elderly persons in Highfield is appealing for help from well-wishers to inject capital for them to start income generating projects.
The committee member of Bako Redonhodzo Old People’s Home in Highfield Mrs Emilia Mukarakatwa told the ZBC News on the sidelines of cloths donations by a local church that they do not have enough food and medicine for the elderly persons.
They are appealing for help from well-wishers to assist with capital for them venture into income generating projects on their 4,6 hectares stand to improve the livelihoods of old aged people.
Pastor Lovemore Chamatowa leader of Rindai Evangelical Church who assisted with the goodies says there was need to remember the elders who are not fairly treated in the society.
Bako Redonhodzo Old People’s Home Matron Mrs Constance Mukize bemoaned the unavailability of a vehicle at the institution as a big problem adding that the elderly walk long distances to seek medical assistance.
Some of the elders could not hide their challenges as they testify that ageing is just a process in every human being.
The event was graced by glorious songs from the praise and worship team from the Rindai Evangelical Church.
The old people’s home was established in the 1960s by business people who have love for the elderly.
