My name is Priscilla Pedyo I lost my mother in August 2018 in Zimbabwe, soon after the funeral, I learnt of my mother (Ellen) with her sister Trina's work in their community, helping so many people with so little they had. the house was like a medical centre,  people seeking basic medical assistance like pain killers as well as food. The situation in Zimbabwe has become very difficult for health centres to treat it's citizens, if people are admitted in the hospital they still need to bring in their own medication because the hospitals have none. Because of these conditions, people are dying from illnesses that could be easily prevented. I understood why my mother tried to help. Ellen's Hope Trust Charity was launched in her memory as a medical response charity, on the 19th of October 2018. from day one, we were overwhelmed with applications for medical assistance.

At the moment we are desperate to help two great young people Mary and Miguel who need prosthetic 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 someday. Mary also needs an operation to remove a protruding bone on her back she has failing eyesight, she has to sit next to the teacher to be able to do her school work.

Miguel was born disabled, is twelve years old, a very energetic and intelligent young man. He is a prefect (head) boy at his school. his dream is to become a pilot someday. Miguel loves kicking a ball with his friends, getting a limb will be a dream come true for him.

Ellen's Hope Trust Charity's 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 people. the Charity has no political or religious affiliation.

 

We are asking you to be part of our vision.
