ABOUT CMF

The Collen Masimirembwa Trust was registered in 2008 to govern and ensure operational viability of the various biomedical research & development (R&D) and community service initiatives that the founder, Prof. Collen Masimirembwa had initiated since 2002. The Collen Masimirembwa Trust operates as Collen Masimirembwa Foundation (CMF).

Vision 

To be an inspirational foundation of excellence in biomedical innovation and services in Africa.

Mission

To establish and promote sustainable biomedical research solutions for the benefit of Africa.

Objectives

One of the main objectives of the Foundation is to serve the rural community through assisting the underprivileged in society particularly orphaned children in the areas of education and healthcare.

CMF ORPHANS ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME

CMF initiated an orphans assistance project which aims at assisting orphaned children with their education, medical and general support as part of its social responsibility activities. Currently there are 112 registered orphans under the CMF Orphans programme from Mashambanhaka and Marowe Primary Schools in Murehwa disctrict with plans underway to register another 100 orphans from Nyanga discrict by January 2011 as part of our ongoing programme.

For all the orphans registered CMF is directly responsible for the orphans' school fees and basic medical requirements. In collaboration with doctors from a local mission hospital, the orphans undergo periodic medical checkups with all costs borne by the foundation. 

CMF VIRTUAL GLOBAL FAMILY (VGF)
Goal
The CMF-VGF seeks to collectively involve the global community in assisting orphans in rural communities with financial and material support for their educational and healthcare needs.

The active participatory approach involves the voluntary virtual adoption of at least 3 primary school going orphans between the ages of 6-12 years by individuals or families through the CMF Global Family program me. The programme aims to build over 300 families of a minimum of 3 orphans each thereby supporting a total of about 1000 orphans by 2015. Virtual adoption in this case refers to the acceptance of the responsibility to care for and support orphans from a distance through the CMF-VGF programme. 

Donate

Your donation, big or small will make an enormous impact to the many orphans in Zimbabwe. Once you have made a decision to be a virtual parent, you will be required to register your personal and contact details with CMF at which point further details will be availed.
