With Love Soup
Kitchen is a weekly pilot project based in Mbare. We have 230 beneficiaries
now officially registered through the local council. Registration
took place at the local Mbare city council hall and we have been
using the register to account for those who benefit from the Soup
Kitchen. Food packs, a healthy wholesome soup and planned workshops
are some of the benefits, which the Mbare recipients receive from
our Soup Kitchen
We would like
to thank Bakers Inn for stepping in and sponsoring bread to out
weekly soup kitchen. Their support and commitment to helping With
Love Foundation and our community is sincerely appreciated.

are in need of practical counselling on communication, discipline

arrived and assisted them with registration and completion of the
parenting questionnaire. The women felt at ease and were very sociable.
Pastor Muhamba’s topic was Communication Breakdown and Liz

thieves of time that should be for them (tv, cell phones, etc.)
Parents were encouraged to love, forgive, befriend their children
and provide a wholesome environment like going to church with them.
Parents were told that words kill and that they need to be examples
/ models and to teach by example what children should do. Shona
summaries of their main points were distributed at the end of the
