UNITED KINGDOM – Over 200 people came to support the official launch of The Woman in Need (TWIN) charity at the Holiday Inn in Maidenhead on Saturday under the theme “Ziva Kwawakabva – Never Forget your Roots”.
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 organisation says it aims to look after vulnerable adults in Zimbabwe and has already rolled out projects in Shurugwi.
Some of the people who came to support the event included Viola Tauro, the widow of the late legendary Zimbabwe and CAPS United striker Shakeman “Shaky” Tauro.
The red tie event at the Maidenhead Holiday Inn was hosted by Radio/TV presenter Love Jones and Everjoy Kurangwah, a philanthropist and founder of Women Aspiring Great Success (WAGS). Performing artist Busi Mhlanga and others entertained the guests.
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.”
