In its ongoing campaign to assist needy charities, MultiChoice Zimbabwe on Saturday July 1 paid a visit to Mother Theresa Home in Ardbennie, Harare.

To top it off, the live music saw the elderly taking to the dance floor to loosen up. They interacted with visitors that they would otherwise not meet with or converse with in the quiet den hidden behind high walls.

The home takes care of old people, many of whom have lost contact with their families or have been abandoned and cannot look after themselves because of old age, sickness and poverty. Some are migrant labourers no longer able to work.

MultiChoice Zimbabwe PR person Liz Dziva was elated at the response as well as the smiles they brought to the family housed at the home.

“It is always warm to see the less fortunate enjoying themselves and being remembered by the rest of society,” she said, adding, “As we said in our invite to our partners who are here, ‘these elderly people are very lonely and their spirits are always uplifted when they meet and interact with friends of the home’. Today their spirits have certainly been uplifted!”
