The Birth of Mother of Peace
Mama Jean and Sister Stella were educated and trained as
nurses in the U.K. With the help of U.K. charities, the Catholic
Church and other philanthropists, Mother of Peace was
formally established as a safe refuge for the children of
Zimbabwe. The community continues to be operated by
Mama Jean and Sister Stella and children of all faiths are
warmly welcomed. In their early years, given the lack of proper medical treatment and medication for the children, Mother of Peace was a hospice where Mama Jean and Sister Stella cared for the children while they were dying of AIDS or other fatal diseases. Today, given the provision of medical treatment, medication and living support from the MOP Consortium and other donors, the fatality rate has stopped. Mother of Peace has not lost a single child in the last 7 years to this horrific disease.
