My name is Samantha Shingirai Murozoki. I am a married mother of two boys and a lawyer by profession. I grew up in a family that was stable financially and always felt that from the position where I was, I could make a difference. I started the Kuchengetana Trust in April 2020 during the first national COVID-19 lockdown in Zimbabwe when my neighbor told me how her family had gone to bed hungry as work and informal trade had dried up under the lockdown.
Together with volunteers, and through the generosity of donations by companies and individuals, we feed the needy in the Chitungwiza community – breakfast to children, and then supper for families. The first day we fed 24 people, some days we have fed up to 4,000 people and a year later we are still feeding on average 2,100 people a day.
