Nearly 100 orphans at Makumbi Mission Orphanage in Domboshawa were recently treated to an early Christmas party by Hyundai Zimbabwe.

The South Korean motoring company donated hampers and hosted an end-of-year Christmas party at the orphanage.

Addressing the beneficiaries at the ceremony, Rotary Club of Harare Dawn president Tafadzwa Katemauswa said they found it befitting to celebrate Christmas with the less-privileged. “We have come here to celebrate Christmas with you and also to hand over a present that was given to us by our friends from Hyundai Zimbabwe, to share with you. Our club has historical ties with this orphanage.”

Acting Matron of Catholic Makumbi Mission orphanage, Maria Sumuperl, told the press that the children were happy after getting a rare chance to meet Father Christmas. This was the first time that the Christmas party at the orphanage has been graced by father Christmas. “It is something that has always been their wish and it’s now a dream come true for most of them. We are happy with the support that we have always received from Rotary Club.”

Hyundai Zimbabwe chipped in more than USD2,000, which was complemented by Rotary Club of Harare Dawn members funds.
