Your support is invaluable to us and us at the ZPSF would never be able to sustain our regular supply of relief parcels if it were not for donations such as yours. Simply put, if it wasn’t for faithful supporters like you, we wouldn’t exist. So thank you for supplying the funds that we need to make a difference in the lives of our “Golden Oldies”.
Sometimes yours is the only GIFT they get!!
Please if you make a donation and are adopting one of our Grannies or Grandpas please send me an email on email@example.com.This is so that I can please keep track of who has been adopted.
The current value of the Christmas single person parcels will be about R800 ($60) (£50). (SAME AS THE PAST 5 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. Your support will go a long way to help making them feel very special this Christmas. As usual things here at the office are hectic as we continue trying to raise funds for the Biggest trip of the year our Special Christmas one.
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
We are currently supporting about 1250 pensioners in 26 Old Age homes / organization’s throughout Zimbabwe with basic meds and food aid every 6-8 weeks or so. We rely solely on Donations from the public to do this as we receive no government funding. Most of the pensioners we help have no income at all and we are their lifeline to survival. There are also numerous articles on the Web about our organization. Our web page is www.zpsf.co.za, all updates are also loaded directly onto our site. We also have a Face Book group as well, please look us up. We welcome anyone who wishes to come and see our warehouse and what we do.
We are an officially registered Non-Profit Organization and Section 21A in South Africa and are registered with SARS as a Public Benefit Organization in terms of section 18A the Income Tax Act (Which means all South African donations are issued with a Tax Certificate and can be claimed back). PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE A TAX CERTIFICATE STATING ALL YOU DONATIONS. PLEASE NOTE THEY ARE ISSUED BASED ON OUR FINANCIAL PERIOD SO THE CURRENT ONES ARE FOR MARCH 2020-FEB 2021. They will be issued once our Financial Year End has been processed, so from about mid-April 2021. UK supporters can be issued with a Gift Aid Certificate via Betti-Ann McLean and the USA account is now a Registered 501(c)3 organization and as such Tax-deductible receipts available for USA donors via Alice Short.
All of this happens because of people like you, our Donors ensure our wheels keep turning, you are all truly amazing. THANK YOU and God Bless.
We hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy.

Alone we can do so little, together we can achieve much more!!!!
The 3 most important pillars of our cause:
UNIQUENESS – being one of a kind and knowing that the ZPSF is driven by good will and very passionate members.
TRANSPARENCY – enforcing the rule that all members must be fully informed before taking part in this noble venture.
ACCOUNTABILITY – Having a traceable paper trail for every cent handled, and regular revues conducted.
