Zimbabwe Victim Support
The following prayer written by a Methodist Minister Freddy Takawarasha gives a better description of the challenges faced by most Zimbabweans.
We give thanks to God for the humility of the Zimbabwean people as they live in hope of a better future while silently struggling with rapid economic decline. We thank God for the growth of Christianity amid acute shortage of basic requirements, declining life expectancy following the collapse of the health sector, crippling unemployment, greed and corruption. We pray for voices for the voiceless, dignity for the dying, food for the hungry, jobs for the seeking, shelter for the homeless. As the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, we pray for improved governance and better distribution of the plentiful natural resources. We pray for better social security and fairness in policing, peace, prosperity and justice for all citizens.
Thankfully regular food distribution from Hillside Methodist Church Bulawayo, into rural areas, enables between 5 and 6 thousand people to survive.
To those who have supported this work a huge thank you.
