Chasiyatende, Zimbabwe

Male | Age: 12 | Birthdate: December 14, 2009

Gerald lives with his twin brother in the rural village of Chasiyatende, where the typical home is constructed from mud bricks, with a grass roof and mud floor. He is an orphan, as his mother is deceased, and his father abandoned him. There is no plumbing, electricity or running water and they must collect their water from the river or an unprotected well. In Chasiyatende, Gerald will face many environmental and social challenges including malnutrition, AIDS and child abuse. Your sponsorship makes it possible for Gerald to attend school where he will receive nutritious food, basic health care, and learn about God’s love for him. In addition, he attends church. When he has free time, Gerald enjoys playing soccer, volleyball, and riding bicycles. He is currently on the school soccer team. Please remember to pray for Gerald. Your love and support will help him receive the assistance he needs to develop to his full potential.

Out of Zimbabwe's 15 million people, more than 1.3 million are orphans, making it the country with the highest number of orphans per capita worldwide. Parents usually die from the country's staggering HIV/AIDS epidemic often leaving older children burdened with the task of raising their younger siblings. Through the VisionTrust Zimbabwe program, we are able to help feed, educate and disciple these children.
