ABOUT CHRISTIAN CARE
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.
Christian Care was initially involved in relief aid in Zimbabwe before Zimbabwe’s political independence in 1980. Today Christian Care works in both relief and development work across the country. It has strategically positioned itself to respond effectively and efficiently to people’s needs through out the whole country and this is done through five regional offices in Mutare (for Manicaland Region), Harare (for the three Mashonaland Provinces), Gweru (for Midlands Region), Masvingo (Masvingo Province) and Bulawayo (for Matabeleland North and South provinces).
Biblical Basis for Our Work
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
