Visiting Mai Chimenya, MADE’s inspiration

posted in: News | 3

The Chairperson and Vice Chairperson took the time to visit Mai Chimenya who

was the inspiration in the first place in starting MADE.

She is 89 years old and was also affected by the floods. Her house has holes

that leak in the roof and her toilet and kitchen area, both damaged by the floods,

would make you cry.

Inspite of all that she is cheerful and happy to show you round and invite you into

her home.

Steps are underway to find the right builders and carpenters to rebuild her toilet

and kitchen area and also a woman to help look after her on a daily basis,

cooking, washing and cleaning for her. The idea is to turn her home into a refuge

and meeting centre for the elderly in the area.

This project will also be chaired at our next meeting.
