ZANE Supporting Struggling Pensioners Under Covid-19 Lockdown

This report is from our ZANE team trying to help the pensioners in Chimanimani who are struggling to recieve supplies.

We are going into a state of heightened tension in Zimbabwe with widespread financial distress, hunger, arrests, human rights abuses and threats from government.

We are in a dusk to dawn curfew, travel is being curtailed both within and between towns and civil unrest is growing.

A very worrying and uncertain time for us all and the people we are trying to assist.

New calls for assistance – particularly with food costs and help with medicines have come in from residents in homes across the Eastern Highlands. People who were just coping are now not coping at all. I have done as much as I can on Whatsapp calls and will visit in the coming week with prayers that I can make it through the many police roadblocks that are proliferating across the country.

With our normal ZANE resources at full stretch already, I am going to be relying on the extra funds that a very generous donor in Australia has made available for just these emergency cases. – it is hard to exaggerate the vital difference that these additional funds make and how important it is for the morale of the team to know that people outside Zim are bearing us in their thoughts, prayers, and generosity – we cannot thank you enough.

Some people have nobody to turn to other than ZANE – please help us to help them by making a donation to ZANE – every little bit helps.

Please donate and make a difference!
