A Huge thank you to Daniel who was able to help at short notice with the February trip due to Attie undergoing treatment for his Cancer. Attie is currently undergoing a set of Radiation treatments which are unfortunately knocking the socks off him. But the results coming back are looking positive and the Doctors do not think that he will have to do Chemo with his current results. So please keep him in your prayers and thoughts.
Once again we are busy getting everything in order for our upcoming April / Easter trip. Hannes was in Zimbabwe for almost 3 weeks with the February trip, He spent a lot of this time in Harare busy trying to sort out the paper work for the upcoming Easter trip (Which we are still waiting for) as from April we will be having to take up our stock from South Africa once again due to the rapid price increases in Zimbabwe and the Rand that is trading so weakly against the US Dollar as everything purchased there is paid for in $US. This means we will once again have to pay for the permits as well as import taxes, customs and surtax, however at this stage this is the most economical route to go and will enable us to keep doing what we are. We have been in contact with Checkers who have their House brand Specials coming up from the 11 April so I am just waiting on their prices before I place a bulk order with them. We will still however be packing the boxes in Bulawayo as certain items such as Sugar, Cooking Oil, Tinned meats to mention a few are not allowed to be imported.
A huge THANK YOU to all our supporters out there who continue to enable us to keep doing what we are doing. Your support is invaluable to us and we at the ZPSF would never be able to sustain our regular supply of relief parcels if it were not for donations such as yours. You our Donors ensure our wheels keep turning, you are all truly amazing. THANK YOU and God Bless.
