TRIP REPORT FOR JULY/AUGUST 2019: DANIEL KOEKEMOER

With the recent electricity cuts in Zimbabwe and our successful solar lamp drive, I got a sense of what Florence Nightingale may have felt as she traipsed around the Crimean hospital wards 160 years ago, bringing light to those in darkness, tending to the wounded. Our ...

March 2019 Trip Report - D Koekemoer

The tenacity and resilience of these special Pensioners left behind in Zimbabwe is just friggen astonishing! These are people that laugh in the face of adversity.

It was an interesting trip this……. The election honeymoon is over, the economy plummeted right before our eyes, the Police are back at their roadblocks (Only partly supervised by the military) and there is a dark mood of despair amongst the folk that we sp...

ZPSF Trip report January/ February 2018 - Daniel Koekemoer

After a slight misunderstanding on the trip commencement date I left Malelane Tuesday 30 January. Dropping your last born at University in Pretoria for the first time and then doing a trip to visit the Pensioners in Zim is emotional suicide but, as always, well worth every single kilometre for the j...

ZPSF Trip Report For January/ February 2017

The first trip of a new year is always exciting for me. This year however reminded me of the very lean years of 2008 to 2010. The new Zimbabwe bond note has been introduced and the ramifications of this move is hugely perplexing for reasons so easy to understand seeing that once again it’s a monetar...
