Young Taku Mushipe- A true survivor

October 31, 2015 Leave a comment


Recently Takudzwa Mushipe, an orphaned epileptic boy aged 5 was burnt in a fire and he urgently needed hospital treatment. Several doctors treated him at Parirenyatwa Hospital where he has recovered very well. Miraculously, he came out of the fire with perfect vision. However his eyelids were permanently damaged and had to be reconstructed. This was done by a local top Zimbabwean eye doctor.
Whilst Takudzwa was in hospital, his clothes as well as his aunt’s ones were stolen from the hospital laundry room. Taku’s aunt, a widow with 4 children approached Yamurai for assistance and was assisted with clothing, toiletries and food.

Taku is on the road to recovery, but he still has a way to go. Taku currently receives epilepsy medications from the hospital, but once he is discharged he will require constant medication at a cost of $15 a month.

Taku lives with his grandmother and a a young cousin. They do not have any social welfare grants, or any assistance from the government. When Taku returns home, he returns to abject poverty, where he cannot afford the epilepsy medicines, that allow him to live a normal life.

Taku needs our help. He is just one in a million, but this little boy has been through so much in his short little life.
If you are able to help Taku access any services, or provide any assistance in any shape or form, please contact YAMURAI at

Yamurai is committed in maintaining such humanity, any help to continue our mission is greatly appreciated!
