Olinda Chapel’s baby Nandi is already striving to make a difference in the world, at only one month old! Olinda took to social media to announce that she is starting a baby club for Nandi.
The baby club is designed to help new mothers who are unable to provide their new born babies with the necessary basic resources. Olinda highlited the plight faced by some women who have no access to items like clothes for their new born babies.
Olinda expressed her desire to raise 1000 boxes for the baby club. She called on people to donate for the noble cause. Each box will contain a baby bottle,a hat, a baby blanket, maternity pads,7 rompers and 7 vests.
Olinda had earlier on expressed her intentions to help underprivileged children when she posted a picture of women in a local hospital sleeping in a dilapidated maternity ward with their babies dressed in pathetic looking clothes. She had then commented that these were the type of people she would like her baby to assist.
Olinda has alwas been humanitarian at heart. She mobilised resources for the cyclone Idai victims. She later called on Zimbabweans to assist Parirenyatwa hospital and set up a fund after videos of the meeting between tearful doctors and the health minister went viral.

Olinda said she felt she had to start the club to help mothers who will be going through what she went through when she was pregnant.
“Nandi’s club is meant to help new mothers in vulnerable situations. The idea was stemmed from our growing interest in neonatal care.
“During my pregnancy, I suffered a number of complications and Nandi’s birth was miracle and a blessing.
“So we would like to help mothers going through the same things especially those do not have support and are struggling.
“I was very fortunate to have a very supportive family and community.
“Nandi was gifted with a lot of makorokoto from the international community and we would like to pass this on to those less fortunate,” she said
She also revealed their target of mothers they intend to help.
“Between now and July 2019, the club aims to raise 1000 boxes for 1000 babies. We are currently going through our search criteria so we can identify those that have the highest needs.
“We aim to build our daughter’s legacy through initiatives so we pray God willingly tis will continue with her, our grandchildren and our great grandchildren.
“Nandi is Olinda and Tytan’s daughter, she is always on the spotlight, vulnerable to the attention that she always gets.”
Olinda said she was using her influence to change people’s lives.
“We believe we might use that attention she receives for something positive and raise her in environment where she understands how helping is way better than receiving.
“Each Nandi’s baby box is set to have: one baby bottle, seven rompers 0-3 months, seven vests 0-3 months, pack of reusable baby diapers, baby hat, baby blanket and maternity pads for mom.
“We hope each box will help new mothers and their new born babies,” added Olinda.
