Dear Friends and Supporters,
We are currently going full tilt with the final preparations for our September trip which will be commencing within the next few days. It currently looks like Johan will be doing most of the trip with the UD 90 and then our team in Bulawayo will do those deliveries.
Once again we are running our adopt a Golden Oldie campaign for our 1050 grannies and grandpa’s still in Zimbabwe this Christmas. The cost of adopting a single person for Christmas will be about R800 ($60). (SAME AS THE PAST 8 YEARS) Even if a group of friends make a joint donation to adopt a Golden Oldie or just add to the Christmas kitty for those who are not yet adopted. We currently have 769 boxes up for adoption. Even if a group of friends make a joint donation to adopt a Golden Oldie or just add to the Christmas kitty for those who are not yet adopted. Your support will go a long way to help making them feel very special this Christmas. For those who would still like to donate towards the upcoming trip or sponsor one of the few outstanding boxes please find in good order the various ways to make a donation below.
For your convenience I have attached a copy of the partial name list of pensioners receiving individual boxes.
Please if you notice any errors on the name lists if you can contact me and let me know. I always try my best to keep it 100% but errors do occur. Also please if you make a donation and are adopting one of our Grannies or Grandpas please send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org no matter which way you are making your donation from the various ways listed below. This is so that I can please keep track of who has been adopted. Thank You.
Prices in Zimbabwe of basics are increasing daily in both the local currency and USD, so no matter what funds, if any you have, you are constantly on the loosing side of the battle. There is just no relief. Our Golden Oldies who are currently most at risk are those who are not in an old age home. They are the ones with little to no support at all. They live in outside “Maids” quarters, in their own home (often falling apart) and for most of them almost total isolation. This is where our Outsiders lists are so important in trying to keep track and assist these Golden Oldies as much as possible. Letting them know we care is of utmost importance.
These food hampers serve 2 purposes.
1 They supply much needed food to the pensioner.
2 The pensioner then knows that someone cares about them
