Editor’s note

Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Valentine’s Day originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honouring one or more early saints named Valentinus. The day is recognised around the world but is not a public holiday anywhere. If you search the web, you will find the history of Valentine’s Day. Try Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine’s_Day.

If you have a loved one, make them feel extra special today. If you don’t, why not treat a family member or a close friend to a delicious meal. Today is all about showing your love to those special people in your life. – Sarah

Twala Trust Newsletter

Torrential rain has left Twala lush and green with rivers flowing and our dam spilling. After a dam burst upstream from the Sanctuary, we sustained considerable damage from flash floods; animal habitats and roads were washed away but thankfully the animals were unharmed. Patrick the Pig lost his house in the flood and then proceeded to add to our woes by throwing a 200 kilogram tantrum and destroying the stable he had been temporarily housed in. Patrick continues to sulk and is not happy at all about having to share a house with the chickens! Click here to read the full Newsletter… http://bambazonke.co.zw/twala-trust-january-newsletter/
