My name is Priscilla Pedyo I lost my mother in August 2018 in Zimbabwe. While in Zimbabwe, i was touched by my mum (Ellen) and my aunt Trina's work, they helped so many people with the little they My mum'shouse was like a medical response centre, people in the village would come seeking basic pain killers and food. The situation in Zimbabwe has made it difficult for health centers to treat it's citizens, if your loved one is admitted in hospital they still need to bring in their own medication because hospital are struggling to supply. Because of these conditions people are dying from illnesses could be easily prevented. The Zimbabwe health system is struggling and i understood why my mother tried to help where she could. Ellen's Hope Trust is a medical response charity started in honour of my mother in October 2018 and we are already overwhelmed with applications for medical attention.

At the moment we are desperate to help two great young people Mary and Miguel have limbs. Mary was involved in a road accident when she was 5 years old she's now 10 years old and doing very well in her class and dreams of becoming a medical doctor one day. Mary also needs an operation to remove a protruding bone at the back of her leg and her eyesight is deteriorating, which will need to be seen by a specialist.

Miguel is twelve  years old, very energetic and intelligent young man. He is a prefect in his class and dreams of being a pilot one day. Miguel loves playing football but unfortunately he really struggles to play with other boys and getting a limb will be a dream come true for him.

Miguel was born disabled and lives with his grand mother he will also need to see a specialist as his knees have been traumatised from kneeling on rough surface.

Ellen's Hope Trust Charity mission is to avail medical and surgical Interventions to the less privileged regardless of  gender, race or creed. The trust is a non profit organisation run by ordinary citizens with no political and religious affiliation.
