Shirley is a field manager in Zimbabwe for ZANE reports: It is very important for ZANE donors around the world to know that the ZANE teams on the ground are proactive in seeking local donors.
A few weeks ago a commercial flower and vegetable grower contacted me as he had a surplus of vegetables that he was unable to sell because they were not ‘shop perfect’. He has agreed to donate vegetables to us each week for the elderly . As he already delivers to the airport early every Wednesday morning , he is happy to drop our vegetables in time to be distributed to the Homes.
Last week he delivered 6 crates of surplus vegies, 6 bags of potatoes and 6 bags of onions as well as 7 crates of juices, amongst other things. We are thrilled, especially as it looks like this will be a regular donation.
