Gogo ( elderly grandmothers)
We provide monthly food parcels for destitute elderly people. These are primarily widows, but also some elderly men. For this project we are partnering with the Lomagundi Clinic, who identify individuals that require the support.
A monthly food pack consists of basic groceries like rice, oil, tea, sugar, soya chunks as well as some hygiene items like soap.
'Gogos' are elderly grandmothers, usually widows, who have become the backbone of Zimbabwe. These ladies often support at least 3 or 4 children or individuals who are without any other means of support. Those they support may be abandoned grandchildren, extended family or street children.
