Mother of 9 appeals for assistance 


Ellen Mlambo

MASVINGO-A Gutu woman who recently gave birth to triplets bringing the number of her children to nine, is appealing for financial assistance to look after her family. 
Rejoice Chihamba (39) told The Mirror that she and her husband, Norman Chihamba (44) are not employed and are struggling to make ends meet. 
Chihamba of Rwodzi Village under Chief Chimombe gave birth to three boys on October 26, 2022. She now has four sons and five daughters. Her first born child is 20 years old. 
“My husband is not employed, and it is now difficult for us to cater for our nine children. We will be forever indebted to anyone who can give him a job. We need food, clothes and even shelter for our children.
“We are accepting all the help we can get be it clothes, food and shelter. Those with land can even give us a piece so that we can cultivate enough food. We do not have space for farming,” she said.
Those who want to assist Rejoice can contact The Mirror Helpline on 0716895703/0775691380
