Munyaradzi's Story


Munyaradzi Mugari (also known as Munya) arrived in the Wimmera with his wife and son in November 2008.

“We moved to Warracknabeal as part of a group of nurses and their families who were employed by Rural Northwest Health. We arrived after having made the difficult decision to leave Zimbabwe and the difficult economic situation there, to try and create a more prosperous future for our family.

“Our son Kundai, has settled in very well initially at Kinder where he got tremendous support from the Kinder teachers and later at school, making a surprisingly easy adjustment to a new language and culture. He has made some friends who I hope will be his life-long friends.
