Christian Care was formed in 1967 by the Zimbabwe Council of Churches and registered as a welfare organization [P.V.O. 79/67]. It is an arm of the churches called to witness the presence of God among the poor and disadvantaged who are burdened by oppression, poverty, ill health, lack of freedom or knowledge to make sustainable life supporting choices.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and in prison and you looked after me…in as much as you have done unto one of the least of these brethren, you have done it unto me”
Matthew 25 v 35 – 36, 40
