Some thirteen years ago, Dr. Robert C. Scott began to make several trips every year to the Mother of Peace Orphanage in Mutoko, Zimbabwe to provide medication and to treat the children at the orphanage and the people living in the surrounding area who were suffering from AIDS. Several children were dying every year. Dr. Scott also at that time started to provide financial support for the operation of the orphanage. Through the years Dr. Scott worked tirelessly to have others join in efforts to support his work in Africa. There are literally hundreds of people from the Bay Area and beyond who have volunteered time at Mother of Peace and have come home forever changed personally and committed to supporting the MOP community.
Dr. Scott passed away in October 2009. However, his work was so successful and appreciated by Mother of Peace that the churches and individuals who had been working with him over the past decade decided to create this consortium to continue his legacy by supporting the orphanage. Today, although about 20 children at MOP who are HIV positive, there are no deaths among the children. But the health, social, educational and spiritual needs of the community continue to be supported, honoring and continuing what Dr. Scott began.
