A glorious opportunity for making Jesus known and loved...

30/06/2014: Zimbabwe

For the needy children from Dete Chezhou (Zimbabwe) neighborhood and surrounding villages Easter was not only an occasion to pray and celebrate the joy of the risen Lord at the church the Marist Brothers and Daughters of Calvary also organized Marist Camp for (from 21 to 23 April).

The camp started with 90 registered needy children but by the end of the camp we had more than 150 children joining in various ball games and recreational activities which were lined up. 

This was a glorious opportunity for making Jesus known and loved by the little ones. Every moment was filled with joy and happiness.

The children had a lot of activities ranging from: soccer, netball, athletics, cooking, dancing, talent shows, dramatization, poetry and storytelling just to mention a few.

It is customary and traditional that the Camp in Dete is run for 3 days since annually we host the bigger Camp at Kutama College in December.

This was another occasion to see Marist Youth Ministry in action reaching some of the most vulnerable children in Dete. 

A good number of the children who came to attend the camp were orphans and some have stopped schooling due to financial problems. 

The Marist Brothers in Zimbabwe would like to sincerely thank the Canadian Brothers who funded the camp and continue to help it with financial support. 

Marist Camp is a registered Welfare Organization that is run by the Marist Brothers. It was founded in 1971 to give a Christmas & Easter holiday ‘camping’ to poor children between 8 and 11 years of age.

The Marist Brothers select the campers from among the outcasts, the ignored, the orphans, the unloved and especially those kept at the fringes of the society. Families that are most in need are our target in order to achieve our goal: share with them the simple God given gifts such as affection, loving presence, time, attention and care.
