Hatikariri & Suellen, Harare

My name is Hatikariri Muzanamombe. I was baptized on February 10th, 1998, at the Harare Church. My wife, Suellen, was baptized on January 26th, 2002. We got married on March 14th, 2003, and we are blessed with two sons, Terrence (19) and Lawrence (13). I am self-employed and run my own business in the printing industry. Unfortunately, the economic challenges faced in Zimbabwe have made it difficult to earn a steady income, and there are times when money does not come in.

My wife suffers from epilepsy and hypertension. After experiencing her first epilepsy attack in early 2012, she was prescribed medication for both conditions. It has been on and off for all these years, and she has suffered some burns and wounds. Her hands have become too weak to handle things, and she has difficulty feeding herself due to a stroke on her left side. Despite frequent hospital visits, her health has deteriorated to the extent that she is unable to bathe herself. Balancing work and attending to my wife's needs has been challenging. Witnessing Suellen's vibrant spirit trapped in a weakened body is the most immense heartache of my life. The fear in her eyes after a seizure haunts me. But she fights every day with a courage that fills me with awe. Eeach slight movement of her hand, sends a surge of hope through me, only to be dashed by the next setback.

Physiotherapy could be the turning point. The doctor believes it can help her regain control of basic movements, like feeding herself or tending to her hygiene. This wouldn't just ease her physical burden but restore a tiny piece of her independence and dignity. It would mean I could breathe easier while working, and while the kids are at school, knowing she's not alone in her struggle. We've exhausted our savings; every penny we earn goes towards her medication, medical bills, and the kids' education. Yet, we're stuck in a relentless cycle of hope and despair.

Please, Grant our request; give my wife a chance to reclaim a part of her life. Your kindness wouldn't just heal her body; it would mend our broken hearts and fill our home with the echoes of her laughter.
