We raise money to assist with a street children's programme in Gweru Zimbabwe. All donations are given to ALERT. Currently ALERT are assisting the Midlands Children Hope Centre a local organisation that cares for destitute children living on the street. A Drop In Centre they operate provides a simple daily lunch and a Norwegian organisation are currently building homes for those children that cannot be reunited with their families. The Swedish Champions known as Vanner Till Gweru Barn ( Friends Of The Children Of Gweru) sponsor the garden which provides a small but much needed income from produce sales. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give a man a fishing rod and you feed him for a lifetime! Champions For Children are about Fishing Rods.
The Maywave Appeal was launched to finance the furnishing of 3 of these homes. The first one has already been built. It's fully furnished and is already home to some of the children. One of the homes will house homeless single mothers and their babies who live on the street.
