In just a few weeks, Eric, Bruce, Dave and Leachie will leave Harare on a mountain bike tour that will take them some 3200 kilometres through Botswana and on to Cape Town…
We’re asking you to support our cause:
Bulawayo Help Network Trust (BHN) and Pensioners Aid Harare
These two Zimbabwean charities support elderly people who have been so badly impacted by the economic turmoil of the last 10 years. Many had sold houses, moved into smaller homes and invested the proceeds expecting to be financially secure for the rest of their days. However when hyper-inflation hit, they lost everything. Many lost their pensions and what they receive today is totally inadequate for their modest needs; all lost their medical aids; and many lost their children who left for greener pastures.
BHN’s and Pensioners Aid’s main focus is on the Old Age Homes in Bulawayo, Harare and the Midlands. They fund raise so that they can provide some help for medical emergencies. They also help certain individuals in their private homes.
ZANE: Zimbabwe A National Emergency is a UK based charity that raises money outside Zimbabwe to help destitute people in Zimbabwe.
