APPEAL for Donations: Lizzy Moyana requires assistance with her quadruplets care

Lizzy Moyana 24yr old now mother of six after giving birth to quadruplets in Chiredzi last week
The Need
24 year old Lizzy Moyana after enduring a 12-and-a-half-hour-long labour that started at Mabeye Clinic in rural Chipinge and ended at Chiredzi General Hospital, 180km away was shocked to find herself giving birth to not one but four babies - Three of the babies — two boys and a girl — weighed 1,8kg each, while the fourth one — a boy — weighed 1,5 kg.
Lizzy Moyana who is already the mother of a six year old girl and a three year old boy is currently living along with her children as her husband had left for South Africa to seek employment. Lizzy is a poor subsitance farmer struggling to make ends meat so the coming of three extra mouths to feed, though joyous was also a big blow. “I am happy that I have given birth to live and healthy babies, but the challenge that I am facing now is that I don’t have money to look after the babies. [SourceNewsday Online.]

The Back story
Island Hospice Service (ISLAND) is a local non-governmental organisation (NGO), registration number W.O. 27/79 and stationed in Harare. It was established in 1979 as the first Hospice in Africa. 

The initial objectives were to provide direct home-based palliative care and comprehensive bereavement counselling services to people with a life-threatening illness including the caregivers and family members. However, ISLAND soon expanded its activities beyond direct service care towards a community-based programme. This is in line with the vision of the organisation and the desire to spread the palliative care and bereavement concept to the whole country especially to the most underprivileged groups.

What they aim to do

  • To provide physical, emotional, social and spiritual care and support, primarily at home and also in hospital, for patients and their families facing a life-threatening illness.
  • To provide a comprehensive, therapeutic service for the bereaved.
  • To provide training within the community and for professionals in the fields of palliative and bereavement care.

The Need

20 year old Alice Mutasa a woman from the high density area of Mbare in Harare, Zimbabwe has given birth to quadruplets on the 19th May 2014.  Alice delivered her four girls through normal delivery at Harare Central Hospital it was reported. 
Alice says her husband is a self employed vendor in Mbare and she is unemployed. The couple have an older child and the quadruplets made them a seven person family overnight. The Mutasa's are poor and therefore can only afford to rent a room in Mbare which is not ideal for the health and well being of the babies or the family as a whole. [Source: The Herald Online]
