Dear Friends and Supporters of the Zimbabwe Pensioner Support Fund,
Just a quick update on what we are up to and our June trip report. I would like to thank everyone who supported our completed June winter trip.
We are in the last stretch before I leave with my other half (Johan Schultz) to go to Zimbabwe for my annual wellness check at all the Homes to see how things are going. This gives me the opportunity to check on special needs / meds requirements. I will also be sorting out the final details for the Solar kits to be distributed shortly all around Zimbabwe to the homes. We have only 95 of the 730 kits that still need to be sponsored, I am speechless and sitting here with tears in my eyes. You are all truly amazing, THANK YOU!!!!.

So hopefully by this time next week I should hopefully be well on my way to Bulawayo, this is of course all dependent on the current situation in Zimbabwe. With their sudden currency changes and banning use of Forex we are not sure what the future is going to bring. One thing I can say for sure is it is not going to make life any easier for our Golden Oldies. This whole situation is having a severe on many of our Golden Oldies, some of whom we have been supporting since we started. Getting basic meds is almost impossible, one can physically the strain and pain on so many of their faces, the weight loss and air of frailty that is hanging around these proud people. This is our way to let the World know of and show their support for our Golden Oldies still in Zimbabwe, whom we have been helping to support with food aid parcels and basic medical supplies for over 17 years. Our Golden Oldies are part of an era that no longer exists, they stayed behind showing faith in a system, that not only let them down but totally ceased to exist. They have lost everything, farms, homes, life savings and in a lot of cases hope. This is where you come in, with your donations we show them that people all over the world still care about them. They may not necessarily be friends or family but there is a worldwide network of supporters who make what we do possible
Some words from Dave” While visiting these homes I was saddened to hear of the spiraling costs of basic necessities that are just out of all our Pensioners reach. For some their chronice meds cost twice their pension if not more, so now they are having to do without or play inni mini mo and decide which meds they will take this month. How these folks are surviving and making it under these very difficult circumstances is beyond understanding What with power outages and the cost of diesel / petrol going up almost daily yet they go on and I’m quite sure support help comes from within and ALL those around them. Also from Our Heavenly Father. AMEN. “
It is truly heartbreaking that a generation that worked hard their whole lives, made adequate provision for their old days should have to go through something like this not once but twice.
Once again THANK YOU to everyone who supports us in whatever way, you are truly Angels!!!
