Street Tech Customers Go The Extra Mile, But Would You Go This Far?

Sometimes we are all called to help others in need. We may do it in small ways, we may do it in big ways. We at Street Tech Auto Care would like to share the story of one of our long time customers who has dedicated her life to helping others in an extraordinary way!mother of peace students imageRoni Jordan first got involved with the Mother of Peace Community in 2003. Her church (City of Refuge) traveled as a group to Zimbabwe, Africa to see how they could be of support to children orphaned by the Aids pandemic. On her journeys she saw how children at the orphanage were picked up from the homes of their deceased or dying parents, from the street by social workers, or from pit latrines or rubbish dumps where they had been abandoned by desperate or frustrated parents or relatives. In fact, the second day of her visit, she attended the funeral of an 11 month old child who had succumbed to this cruel disease. The Mother of Peace Community in Zimbabwe started from humble beginnings in a house for a few children. They offer a loving, stable and secure home environment for 108 abandoned children who have lost parents to HIV. Here, these children find a home where they receive education, medical treatment, spiritual enrichment and above all unconditional love. The Mother of Peace operates as an orphanage. It has a nine-member Board of Trustees which oversees general fiscal and policy issues; and a 10-member Management Committee responsible for the day to day administration. Among others MOP has six female and five male non-salaried dedicated volunteers. mother of peace school imageTwo ladies that have dedicated their lives to these children, Jean Corneck turns 82 this month and her sister Stella is 66 and they are growing weary. In early 2014 Roni Jordan decided to take a leap of faith. She sold her home, and traveled to Zimbabwe to help in this good work.When we learned of Roni's story it made us wonder what else we could do to help. If reading this story made you feel the same way, please check out the Mother of Peace website here. Of course, even with volunteers and good people like Roni, the Orphanage still needs a budget for food, clothing and schooling for the orphaned children.
