UNITED KINGDOM – The Woman in Need (TWIN) charity is set to be officially launched in Maidenhead on Saturday under the theme “Ziva Kwawakabva – Never Forget your Roots”. The organisation says it aims to look after vulnerable adults in Zimbabwe and has already rolled out projects in Shurugwi.
Speaking to Nehanda Radio, TWIN founder Abigail Ramwi said “I believe that my husband’s illness was a wake up call to remind me who I am and this has given me an opportunity to plough back to my roots. Hence the theme (Ziva Kwawakabva – Never Forget your Roots”.)
The red tie event at the Maidenhead Holiday Inn will have Radio/TV presenter Love Jones and Everjoy Kurangwah, a philanthropist and founder of Women Aspiring Great Success (WAGS) as the MC’s. Performing artist Busi Mhlanga will also be entertaining guests.
The hosts on the night will be the husband and wife team of Abigail and Kanisio Ramwi. The charity has been registered in Zimbabwe as The Woman in Need Trust and already has projects running in Shurugwi which seek to help vulnerable adults.
Ramwi who grew up in Bulawayo but has roots in Shurugwi said she was also inspired by her aunty who was a giver and was doing charity work around the early 80’s in Zimbabwe. Ramwi told us The Woman in Need (TWIN) charity is driven by Proverbs 31:20 which says; “She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.”
