PASSING children with special needs begging for food and money in her community day in and day out pushed Queen Ncube to quit her job as a councillor and try to help them.
Ncube soon founded the Born Again Community Care Centre to help children with special needs.
Ncube explained that it really broke her heart seeing these children begging in the streets from sunrise until sunset, saying: “Daily, despite the blistering sun or stormy rains, I saw these children begging on the streets.
“What baffled me the most was the whereabouts of their parents?”
The founder of the Born Again Community Care Centre said that, after contemplating on how she can help these children, she came to the decision to leave her job so that she could fully focus on helping them.
Ncube left her job in April of 2017 and the Born Again Community Care Centre started operating in October of the same year.
“I was so heartbroken when I visited the children’s homes due to the situation I came across at each home, however because I had a vision of giving them the love they deserved, everything came together well and my heart was fulfilled,” she said.
Ncube said what made her happy the most was seeing the children not on the streets, but rather in the shelter she provided for them, where she looks after them daily and provides basic essentials.
She added that being able to shower them with love really satisfies her and she doesn’t regret quitting her job to look after these children, even though she’s not being paid to do it.
Ncube’s message was that she would like to encourage parents to love their children no matter what their situation may be.
