One woman who wanted to do something for orphans on the streets of Zimbabwe’s capital city, for years, quietly served tea and bread to children at the same spot in Harare. She was overwhelmed by the growing AIDs crisis in Zimbabwe and the large number of children who had no place to live after their parents died. Joan, who is from South Africa, came to be known among the street children as “The Tea and Bread Lady.” Her simple acts of kindness caught the attention of a group visiting from a Presbyterian Church in Nashville. Church members decided to help Joan take her ministry further. Home of Hope provides Joan with a place for the orphans to come and get food, basic medical supplies and love. These children would have no hope without the care that Joan provides. It is our honor to support her work through this Fund.
