BETTER DAYS – AIDS ORPHANS

Hi there friends
My name is Andrew and I work with Better Days a UK charity linked to New Dimension Kingdom Fellowship church. The main mission is to look after and give a future to AIDS orphans in Zimbabwe. At Better Days , we have been looking after the AIDS orphans and paying some of their school fees. These children are normally left with no one when their parents die from this horrible disease, AIDS.
We have already acquired land in Zimbabwe to build a decent home for these children who are just managing to survive. We aim to build a home for them which includes a clinic and two classrooms to give them education . Better Days believes these children deserve better chances in life like everyone of us.
What we are going to do:
1. A sponsored drive from London UK to Harare Zimbabwe in 2017 with myself and two other volunteer drivers
2. Our target is £100 000 and a car (preferably a 4x4) to use for the drive
3. The money raised will be used to buy materials and build a home for the 20 orphans that we are looking after
4. We already have a nurse and informal teachers who help us to look after these kids and we plan on recruiting more nurses and teachers for the Better Days project
5. The sponsored drive will take about 10 days
6. We will be updating you on the sponsored drive everyday on social networks.

My involvement with charity work started about 10 years ago when I realised that there were a lot of underprivileged children in Zimbabwe. Mainly it was due to the fact that many young parents were dying of HIV and AIDS. I started working with some Medical Doctors in Zimbabwe . I would collect medical equipment ( bandages , dressings , syringes etc) from hospitals and send them to these doctors who would go around the country doing surgeries and giving treatment to the less privileged .

I started paying school fees for orphans. My mother housed a few orphans and I through my church would look after these children
