Walking in crisis time
Each year since Jane and I founded ZANE in 2002/3, I used to think that surely things can’t get worse for the destitute people of Zimbabwe. This year, more than any other, the situation has deteriorated to breaking point.
Rampant and growing inflation, chronic fuel shortages, 18-hour daily
power cuts, escalating food prices and a shortage of medical supplies are the new normal. Just one of these would be hard enough to contend
with for ZANE’s beneficiaries, but this combination is today a vortex of
desperation, fear and panic.
ZANE’s staff and beneficiaries tell us that conditions are even worse than
those in 2008/9. The demand for ZANE’s help is greater
This is why Jane and I, and our dog, Moses, are walking again for ZANE.
We walk to replace hunger with food, to replace fear with hope for those
with nowhere else to turn.
We walk because we know, with your support, ZANE can make a vital
difference. Your generosity is saving lives.
If you have already sponsored us for ZANE’s work, thank you. Your donation is already bringing comfort to those who need it most. If you
haven’t, please do so.
