HCOC (Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care) is a mission started by Renewed Hope Charitable Foundation in 2001.

Front of OCCRenewed Hope organized in late 1996 and made the first visit to this rural region in early 1997.  Visits by missionaries are made annually.  Over the past many years, with help from the Zimbabwe Mission Partnership, more than 20 40-foot sea containers have been shipped loaded with clothing, blankets, medical supplies,  rice, beans and many other necessary items. The orphans numbering up to approximately 1,000 always receive one meal a day and two when food supplies allow.
