Dear Zane Australia Donor,
On behalf of pensioners in Zimbabwe I convey heartfelt thanks to you for the donations you have made to Zane Australia in 2014.
This year we have used just under US$8000 raised in Australia
Your money has been used for:
- helping to pay for the rent of pensioners in retirement homes
- helping with the school fees we pay for 31 orphans in a poor suburb of Bulawayo,
- helping towards our Medical Emergency Fund
- funding the fuel requirements for the Bulawayo team
Please may you assist us to increase our donor base by forwarding this email to your friends.

The Zane board, headed in Australia by Vice President Steve Pulman, is pursuing the goal of tax deductibility for donations made.
Should this process be successful it will greatly enhance our fundraising capacity.
Zimbabwe remains stuck in the past as the war mentality of senior politicians dominates the political landscape. They are not yet ready to create the level playing field required for economic prosperity. For economic recovery we need a new political vision. We need to heal the wounds of the past, the genocide of 1983/87, the damage done by the collapse of the economy 1997 to 2008, the dislocation of Murambatsvina in 2005, the violent displacement of commercial farmers and their workers and the myriad of incidents of politically motivated violence over many decades. We need to agree on just who was a Zimbabwean and who could be classified as a Citizen of the country. In this respect we have to deal with tribal, racial and all other forms of prejudice and discrimination.
As long as we remain in this position a wide range of victims deserve our support.
