Imba House fills a void within the healthcare system in Zimbabwe where disabled children and their parents face shame and social stigma. Often Fathers abandon the family, leaving Mothers to be the sole providers. There is no state support for these families.
Disabled people are segregated from the rest of society - disabled children are prevented from going to school and even playing with other children out of fear and a lack of understanding.
Although its resources are extremely limited, with funding coming entirely from donations, Imba House provides respite care for the children, enabling mothers to work to support their families. The centre also seeks to educate by being a beacon to enable others to understand the value and contribution disabled people can make to Zimbabwean society.
