How does one put into words 20 years worth of work, Magic and of caring? One cant!!!! That’s how long in one way or another we have been helping pensioners in Zimbabwe. This is the story of one mans dream turned into reality- Incredible if I must say so. We firmly believe that had it not been for Hannes’s tenacious and “Bull Terrier” like spirit, the past 20 of years “roadblocks and curved balls” would have ended this dream. Yet as he has said many times to us, “these people are my life and nothing will stop me from serving them with payback”.
Over the past year of 2021 we lost many of our Golden Oldies and have had very sore hearts at the best of times. But we have also shared many smiles and tears with our Golden Oldies and this has made what we do even more special to us. The reason the Fund came about was when Hannes received a call from a friend in Zimbabwe and her mother yelled in the background “Tell Hannes we are living on potatoes”. This was 20 years ago. Joyce Boshoff passed away on the 27th November 2012 and is still sorely missed. But thanks to her so many other pensioners are able to benefit from what we do.
Please note some of these photos are really old and the are quite a few of our Golden Oldies featured in them who have moved on or passed away.
