The Jairos Jiri Association was established in the 1940s by Jairos Jiri with the aim being to enhance independence, dignity and self-confidence of people with disabilities.
Jairos Jiri did not only gave hope and opportunity to thousands of people living with disabilities during his lifetime and after his death, but he also earned Zimbabwe international recognition in the care and rehabilitation of the disabled. The Association exists to assist rehabilitation of disabled persons within Zimbabwe as well as to learn and be trained skills so they are empowered to manage their lives and become responsible citizens of society.
Agape Family Care partnered with one of the institution’s centers in Waterfalls Harare in support of the great work that is already being done upholding the lives and dignity of the disabled in our communities. The institution currently relies on donor funding in order to run its daily affairs and providing meals for its residents.
The donated goods included; Mealie Meal and Cartons of Rice, Flour, Sugar, Salt, Juice, Sugar Beans, Soya Chunks, Peanut Butter, Powdered Milk, Tissues, Cooking Oil, Tea Bags, Tooth Paste, Bath Soap, Washing Powder and Laundry Soap. This donation is part of Ruth Emmanuel-Makandiwa’s commitment to relieve suffering and improve the lives of the vulnerable in our communities.
