History of Casa Reom
In 1989 5 missionaries started a refuge at a building in Beira and called it 'Casa Reom' (which means 'House of the Good Shepherd'). They offered food and beds to the many street children orphaned by the civil war. YWAM and St. Matthew's Church in Rugby helped with the finance to provide beds, food and schooling. By 2004 the town centre was crowded and the numbers of children orphaned by AIDS was rising. The local people had a vision for an additional out-of-town site to take more children, teach vocational skills, but preserve the ethos and culture of Casa Reom. A team from St. Matthew's Church visited decided to help. Casa Reom Trust was created to help raise funds for this and for the running costs. UK church members provide support with the building, planning, occasional visits and encouragement.
