Refuge: Zimbabwe || The Chari's
Organized by: Regina Chari (Jones)
EVENT DATE Jun 01, 2014
Ok, you probably already know that Regina is crazy... but you might have thought it would take more than 6 months of marriage to make Nyasha nutty too! If you did, you'd be wrong.
These two are on a mission to buy a house and grow roots in their community. No more moving around. Roots. A sanctuary. But not just for them-- they are going to try to make Regina's dream come true. All these years she has been talking about a Refuge for abandoned babies and orphaned children... if you've known her for more than 5 minutes you have heard the story, the hope, the dream.
So here it is. They need some money. Houses in Zimbabwe are not cheap. This one is gonna cost somewhere between $150,000-$200,000 (yup that's US Dollars, not those old Zim Dollars you have tucked in a drawer somewhere.)
They will move in the house with their little family, and when Social Welfare gives them the go ahead, they will begin the journey of loving the little ones in transition. This WILL NOT be an orphanage (if you've known Regina for 6 minutes you know that she thinks those are a last resort.) Regina and Nyasha will be what DSS calls "A Place of Safety" a short term placement for kids who are awaiting a placement with an adoptive or foster family. They will love them in this gap between biological family and their new home.
Let's help them do this.
