Windows of Hope builds awareness for pandemic aftermath

By Kerry Allan | Zimbabwe in Southern Africa

Windows of Hope Zimbabwe in collaboration with Serving In Mission’s For Freedom anti-trafficking ministry recently held an awareness campaign and training for residents in rural areas affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

For Freedom’s COVID-19 response is an integrated, holistic approach programme to protect and prevent those most at risk of being trafficked and exploited and is a major partner of the Windows of Hope ministry.

Volunteers in the Chiredzi district were also supplied with branded face masks and hand sanitisers to enable them to to conduct safe home visits to critical clients who need urgent interventions during the current coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking during the event, district coordinator Mrs Susan Mutendadzamera said the project would go a long way in enabling and intervening in all forms of human trafficking and exploitation within the Chiredzi community.

Pray for:

• discernment for SIM teams across the world as they build protective strategies into their ministries to keep at-risk communities safe from exploitation.

• the work of Windows of Hope Zimbabwe as they care and support people in the aftermath of COVID-19.

• local churches to reach out to the vulnerable in their communities.
