My name is Vincent, and my wife Locadia and I met at church. Our faith has been a constant source of strength, especially during difficult times. I was baptized in 2004 in Harare, and my wife was baptized four years later in Bulawayo. Together, we've built a beautiful family with our two precious daughters. Our eldest has begun her Early Childhood Development (ECD) learning, a source of our immense pride.

Locadia is a plain housewife. while I navigate the challenges of living with epilepsy. Diagnosed in 2013, the condition has significantly impacted my ability to find a well-paying job to support our family. Despite our hard work, covering even necessities like food has become a constant struggle. The true hardship lies in managing my medical needs. My epilepsy can worsen by the day, with the frequency of seizures directly affecting my medication costs. Each month, depending on the number of seizures, I require $100 worth of medication, a significant financial burden.

It is with a heavy heart but unwavering faith that I reach out to the ETF. Your support would mean the world to us. We desperately need assistance to acquire my medication and undergo proper scans and x-rays to determine if there are any fractures or brain damage caused by the seizures. Through your generosity, we hope to manage my health and create a brighter future for our family. We are incredibly grateful for any support you can offer. May God bless you abundantly.

My name is Anasse, and I have been a devoted follower of Jesus for the past eight years. Up until 2022, I used to work for a small company and earned a minimum wage. Unfortunately, due to my Acute Osteoarthritis, I had to stop working as it made it impossible for me to walk and move around normally. This condition has caused me excruciating pain in my knee joints, and I now rely on a crutch to support my body when standing and moving. I have already spent all of my savings on medical bills and am struggling to cover my ongoing expenses. Therefore, I am reaching out to ETF for financial assistance to cover my medical expenses, including doctor appointments and maintenance. Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated in easing my financial burden.

My name is Norah Kamwambo. I have been a disciple for 31 years and was baptized in South Africa. In 1995, I relocated back home to Zimbabwe. I am a single mother of two boys and two girls, and I have six grandchildren. After retiring from working at a pharmacy, I now rely solely on my pension. But since my 47-year-old daughter was diagnosed with mental health problems, everything has changed. She needs to take medication every day to control her mood swings. Due to the high price of her medication, my monthly pension is not enough to cover the cost. Additionally, my grandsons live with me.

I am reaching out to my brothers and sisters for help during this difficult time. I need support to be able to provide medicines for my daughter and food for my grandchildren. Any amount of help is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

My name is Herman, and I have been a disciple of Jesus for 19 years. I am part of the Church on the Ivory Coast. Unfortunately, I had a stroke attack last year, and now I am entirely dependent on my mother for my daily needs. She has been doing an excellent job of taking care of me, but we are struggling financially. My mother, who used to sell in the market to support herself, now has to help me, which has made things very tough for her. Due to my stroke, I am not fully functional, and it is a struggle for me to make even the slightest movements. Therefore, I am reaching out to ETF for assistance. I need help to afford my medication and, more importantly, my rehabilitation. It is my goal to recover soon. This will ease my mother's burden. Any amount you can spare will go a long way in helping us get through this difficult time. My sincere thanks go out to you.
