As always the newsletter is full of information from the Home. This particular quote really struck me this time…
“You will be amazed how costs are rising. Yesterday morning I boarded a bus for town for $1.50, but after my exams-around 5pm-the bus fare was $5.00”.
On a more positive note the MRCH Big Sunday fundraiser raised £4,195 for the Home as well as receiving lots of goods in kind – though this is down on previous years.
Finally, a book by Graham Jones describing the life and work of Astonishment Mapurisa – a former Director of the Home is coming out in September. It will be available on Amazon ‘Astonishment:Laying Ghosts in Mugabe’s Zimbabwe’.
