World Vision Zimbabwe hands over the Tongwe Waiting Mothers Shelter in Beitbridge District
World Vision Zimbabwe handed over a state-of-the-art Tongwe Waiting Mothers Shelter to Beitbridge Rural District Council as a way of encouraging pregnant mothers to deliver at a health facility. Tongwe Waiting Mothers Shelter where expectant women can stay during their last six weeks of pregnancy is very critical in saving lives. The three-block structure has a kitchen, ablution facilities, and eight bedrooms which have a carrying capacity of 16 people.
World Vision Zimbabwe
World Vision began operating in Zimbabwe in 1973, primarily providing assistance to children’s homes and offering relief to Zimbabweans in camps and institutions.
After independence in 1980, our focus changed to rehabilitation and small-scale development programmes as the country absorbed exiled and previously displaced groups.
Over the years World Vision has transitioned to large-scale community development programmes designed to address community needs, with a specific focus on children, using participatory planning approaches and ensuring sustainability.
Today, World Vision is the largest humanitarian organisation in Zimbabwe, operating relief and development projects across the country benefitting more than 2 million people each year.

Stop a lost generation
Isolated in unsafe homes, sent to work or pushed into early marriage, millions of boys and girls could be facing physical, emotional and sexual abuse as result of the pandemic.
Many children are already suffering and helplines are being overwhelmed with calls.
The effects on these children will last a lifetime. We must prevent this devastating legacy.
Please help us to convince governments and UN agencies to act.
Please call on governments and institutions to urgently increase funding for health, education and other social services that protect children from all forms of violence and abuse, especially for girls and boys at greater risk due to the impacts of COVID-19.
