After 10 years of living in the Trenance Squatter Community, Ntombezinhle Ngwenya, two of her daughters (12 & 15 years) and 9 grandchildren (4-15 years old) were relocated to Esiphezini, 30km from the city by Our Neighbours Ministry, due to a number of sexual abuses happening within the family. Since the relocation, Our Neighbours has been providing moral and spiritual support to the family. They were chosen as one of the Roots for Zimbabwe's Egg Program Recipients in light of their recent severe food struggles.

We've seen how much education impacts the lives of these kids. Leaders have emerged and hearts began to dream of a positive future!
Unfortunately, we also have seen the harm of malnutrition first hand. It is proven that adequate nutrition increases brain function and the ability to learn. The communities we work in lack secure shelters, access to clean water, and have little certainty of food each day.
We are currently able to provide 1000 eggs a month to children who are living in extreme poverty. But we can't stop there. Our goal is to provide 5,000 eggs a month and we need you to do it.

(Translated) They are very grateful to Roots for Zimbabwe for awarding them the opportunity of getting the eggs. They use the eggs relish for dinner and at times the kids carry the eggs to school to eat at lunchtime. - Mpofu Family
