We are always on the lookout for volunteers to travel with us, get the hands on experience, grind the mill and get excited enough to promote our efforts. It is not good to travel these distances alone but the need is greater than the risk. Please avail yourselves and come along. It’s not a picnic or a holiday but you do have fun. We are also in desperate need of volunteer drivers for the trucks. Need a Code 14 license and valid PDP (Public Drivers Permit).
Your donations are important to the survival of our wonderful Golden Oldies. Our elderly pensioners are very proud and are not looking for sympathy, however they greatly appreciate any and all assistance we are able to supply them with. They do not have any means of conveying their gratitude to all of you our supporters, but convey their thanks to us on the ground (Via letters and words of thanks which are often published for you to see) and are often reduced to tears when given a box of very basic foodstuffs with their name on the box, so that they know that box was packed for them . As we have said before, our trips to Zimbabwe to help our Golden Oldies are always emotional ones.
A Thank You letter Received –
A very warm thank you from All our members who receive food parcels from you and your organization of God’s Angels on earth…… We are so blessed to have people like you who care.
Unfortunately our needs are growing and we have to add people to the list all the time as money runs out and the elderly get older and frailer… it is so heart breaking to see these once proud men coming into my office some as old as 85 years old, thin, frail and Very obviously struggling, with their caps in hand asking if we can put them on our list of Job applications so that they can go out and get a job. It is soul destroying. All I can do is add them to my growing list and pray that we can get enough food parcels to go around. At present we are giving out alternative deliveries. So have a list of some this delivery and then the next delivery the next lot get. Not ideal but then we do not live in an ideal world.
We are so terribly grateful for every parcel that makes its way to us, through all trials, borders and other problems.
Please can you accept my heartfelt gratitude for EVERYTHING that you do for our members.
I PRAY that God will bless you all abundantly for the work that you do.
In His name.”
URGENT HELP NEEDED IN THE UK-
Heather has been managing the UK account all by herself for the past few years and has managed to get the Zimbabwe Pensioner Support Fund registered as a Charity in the UK so that donors from that side can receive Gift Aid Certificates. We are desperately looking for people that can assist Heather in the UK, she is over 80 and is having a hard time of things. She needs seriously interested people to join the Board Of Trustees who will be able to offer their time and assistance. Guys Please we had a few peeps contact us but no one has committed according to my knowledge. Please anyone who can assist can contact Heather at the following email address – firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome anyone who wishes to come and see our warehouse in Malelane and what we do.
We are currently supporting just over 1450 pensioners in 28 homes / organizations. We also support SOAP (Support Old Age Pensioners) in Bulawayo and have helped to set up a system similar to SOAP in Gweru, Zvishavane, Masvingo, Red Cliff, Kwe Kwe and Kadoma to cater for pensioners that are not in old age homes as well. 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 donations in South Africa can be issued with a Tax Certificate and can be claimed back).
Please if I can once again ask who requires Section 18A Tax Certificates (South Africa for March 2016-FEB 2017) as I am finished sending them for everyone that requested one. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS ONLY FOR RSA DONORS.
Please Note for a Tax Certificate I require the following:
1. Physical Address
2. Contact Number
3. If Business – Registered Name, Comp Number
4. Private – Initials and correct Surname
This just makes sure we are 100% in line with SARS.

Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. ~Andrew Carnegie
