“I am encouraged when I visit Mtshabezi Hospital and see the improvements in the level of health care provided. I also know that my family did not die in vain when I see hundreds of people lined up to receive free treatment in the Community Health Outreaches that we run every six months.”

“We believe it is our privilege and obligation to care for those in need in this world. Just as adults are responsible for children, those that have so much are responsible for sharing what they have. As an ovarian cancer survivor, it was my privilege to be cared for during my first hospitalization at Thornton hospital by Lindani Sibanda. Later I met her as a colleague at a conference on hospice and palliative care and we became friends. It is a joy to see what she has done to continue providing resources for those in Zimbabwe who have suffered so profoundly under economic and political strain. We have all been blessed through this effort and encourage as many who are inspired to join in this worthy cause. If it was our children suffering wouldn’t we want them to be helped? We are all family in this world and it is our joy to do what we can to treat each other with love, respect and generosity.”

“I am a historian who has done many interviews with people whose origins are in Gwanda district. My life has been so blessed by learning about the families of that area, and people have welcomed and helped me with such open hearts. Lingadinwa lakusasa: I can never give back all that I have received. One sits here in North America, grieving for the losses and suffering of the people during these difficult days. Then comes an opportunity to give funds that will go directly to benefit people in the area around Mtshabezi. When I learned that Hope for Mtshabezi would give me an opportunity to give something back, however small, I was happy to do this, even though I don’t have as much to give as I would like. It also helps that I have such trust in the people who administer the “Hope for Mtshabezi” initiative. God bless Dr Hlezikuhle Nyoni-Nkala and the brave staff at the hospital. May they be empowered to share healing for many.”

“It is a great joy to speak a few words about Hope for Mtshabezi. I met Lindani Sibanda about 14 years ago when her daughters began attending Vista Christian School where I was Principal. It was as we became heart friends that I clearly saw the call of God in her life to bring hope to her beloved people in Zimbabwe. It was a joy to be part of that call through the students at school and now later as a friend whom our Savior has invited to come along side to share His heart and hers through prayer and sharing His financial blessings. My husband and I consider it a great privilege to be part of the Hope for Mtshabezi family!”

“I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.”
