About Mother of Peace Community

Mother of Peace Community, Zimbabwe is a voluntary orphanage providing up to 60 children with a place they can call home.

It was founded in 1994 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Zimbabwe which left many children orphaned.

As a private voluntary organisation, Mother of Peace Community (MOPC) Zimbabwe depends on donations from well-wishers and supporters for its survival. With up to 60 resident orphans to care for and providing on-going support for children who have been re-integrated into their wider families, MOPC needs substantial support to meet the running costs. Mother of Peace Community UK is a small charity set up in 2004 to support and raise funds for MOPC Zimbabwe. Learn More


I am pleased to be associated with MOPC UK and the wonderful work it does to support orphans and vulnerable children in rural Zimbabwe.

The Community

Mother of Peace Community (MOPC) Zimbabwe was established in 1994 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Zimbabwe which left many children orphaned and some infected with HIV themselves. MOPC cares for these orphans and vulnerable children by giving them a home in the orphanage.

History

In the early 1990’s HIV/AIDS was endemic in Zimbabwe with up to 50% adults infected with HIV. At this time, there was minimal access to anti-retroviral treatment and mortality rates soared. Many babies and children were orphaned and some were abandoned by desperate families.

Reintegration

Since 2004, in line with the Government of Zimbabwe’s National Action Plan for orphaned and vulnerable children, MOPC has sought to reintegrate as many children as possible with their wider families.

MOPC UK

Established in 2004, MOPC UK provides funding for the MOPC orphanage in Mutoko area Zimbabwe. We are a small charity who welcome support from anyone who is interested in the welfare of the children at MOPC.
