This quarter and update from the Home, reports Zimbabwe may be facing a major food crisis this year, a combination of poor rainfall and shortages due to the war in Ukraine being particularly felt. Crops grown by the Home are affected. The cost of fuel is also affecting the Home, the generator can only be run for a few hours each day as a result. On the up side there is great news about some of the students sitting national exams and the annual event – Matthew Rusike Week – will be returning to fundraise for the first time since 2019.
There is a detailed breakdown of the costs involved in caring for children at the Home. It is amazing how quickly it adds up. Please take a look and see if you can help.
David and Wayne report back on the fundraising drive in a 91 year old Ford from London to John O’Graots, to Lands End and back to London. Quite an undertaking. There is still time to contribute to their final tally.
