Eid-ul Adaah - Rural Outreach in Hatcliffe, Zimbabwe
Gift of the Givers served 1458 Qurbani meals as well as Hotdogs, Burgers and Roasted Potatoes to over 220 families and countless children who attended the event to catch up with friends, share new experiences, take shelter from the heat, and just cool off in the pools enjoying a fun filled day of activities. Elders took cover in a comfortable spot and shared stories of their youth having a good old chuckle at those priceless moments. The atmosphere was unbelievable everywhere you looked people were filled with excitement, all you heard was laughter and sound of children buzzing around entertainment points.
The ladies of the communities assigned us as “guests” as they ran the kitchen while the men set up the equipment. This gave us time to connect with the children in between managing the meal coupons ensuring everyone got something to eat. An absolutely magical fun day that brought communities together and most of all allowing those from child headed homes to just be children.
Gift of the Givers provided the following:
- Lunch for 220 Families
- 10 x 12 metre Inflatable Swimming Pool & Water Slide
- Jumping Castles
