Makandiwa hosts 400 under-privileged children at local hotel


United Family International Church (UFIC) leader Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa’s wife, Ruth, on Friday hosted over 400 under-privileged children drawn from various orphanages and communities during her birthday bash held at a top city hotel.

The programme, which has now become an annual event, is part of her philanthropy work initiated by her Charity Ministry.

These include her annual birthday bashes, where she hosts hundreds of under-privileged children and donates various goods ranging from stationery, clothing, and groceries to different orphanages.

She also regularly donates stationery, clothing and groceries in addition to giving financial assistance to widows, street children, health institutions, under-privileged schoolchildren.

Ruth is also involved in various community development projects, particularly in rural areas.

UFIC, founded in 2008 after Makandiwa broke ranks with the Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe, is one of the fastest growing pentecostal churches in the country.
