In Honour of Mzreshe - Who Will Be Missed
It is with deep sadness that we share with you,
the passing of one of our dear HFK family members,
Mzreshe Zwede age 45.
Mzreshe was the matriarch of one of our first sponsored families
and was the mother of six and grandmother to seven.
She will be missed by many and especially by her 4 grandchildren
who loved her deeply and depended on her for their daily needs and care.
enabled her to survive a life full of unspeakable hardship
and to fight a long and courageous battle with illness.
Today she is with our Lord
and free from tears and sickness...
Hallelujah - she is released!
We are genuinely grateful for her sponsors John and Joanne,
who gave her much support and love over these last few years
and for Rahel, Beza, Desta, Jake, the recent HFK Medical team and others
who compassionately ministered to her during her last days.
Please pray for Mzreshe's family and especially
her four young grandchildren (5 - 14yrs) whom she was raising
and for those who will be making decisions on their behalf
in regards to future care.
Mzreshe loved her family and struggled hard
to support them in whatever way she could
Over the last few years, she appreciated having a reprieve from the 'survival mode' that she had lived most of her life. She always loved
being valued and receiving words of compassion & encouragement,
as well as small gifts from her sponsor family in Canada:
In spite of her deteriorating health, Mzreshe tried new skills
at the income generation program and settled
into knitting scarves from her home.
Mzreshe we love you and you will be missed!
