2003 Big Brother Africa (BBA) Winner Cherise Makubale says the commemoration of Zambia’s fiftieth independence anniversary presents a great opportunity for society to support vulnerable children in the country.
Ms Makubale said concerted efforts are needed to address the plight of vulnerable children in the country.
Ms Makubale said this yesterday at Cherise Park in Lusaka when she feted over 50 orphans from the Zambia Childcare and Adoption Society resident at Chilenje transient home. Cherise Kids Park is a multi function facility whose aim is to promote age appropriate awareness programs to children on issues such as Road Safety, Girl Child, Environment and HIV/Aids through a play park setting.
The BBA winner said she decided to fete the children as a way of celebrating Zambia’s 50 years of independence.
Ms Makubale said children must not feel neglected but feel that they belong to a country that cares for them.
She said vulnerable children also need to experience the jubilee and that the fun day she had organized was one way of availing the children an opportunity to celebrate the country’s 50 years of independence.
Ms Makubale appealed to Zambians across the country to do a humanitarian deed to children as an act of jubilee to someone in need.
