During 2015 we raised £1555.57 towards various small projects for the charities we support and promote. This was through three main means – The regular monthly donation made for Pari Volunteers specifically, a team fundraising day in March where a company in London donated the proceeds to Friends of Kids in Zimbabwe and Give as you Live where supporters shopped on line at over 4 000 top retailers and we received a donation at no extra cost to the shopper.
With this we have passed the money on to Pari Volunteers for their scans, drugs and support of the children in the Parirenyatwa Hospital in Harare, who cannot afford to pay for their much needed treatment. We have also assisted with the upkeep of the swimming pool at St Catherine’s and the repairs of the washing machines at The Jairos Jiri Centre.
Toys and Stationery generously donated to Friends of Kids in Zimbabwe have been distributed to some of the organisations we support and we have promoted the various projects and events held by our benficiaries.
As well as this, during 2015 we have been able to direct 29 families, with children needing assessment and assistance, to the appropriate facility and supplied 7 people looking to help at the various charities, with the information they were looking for. So although we were not able to cover large projects, we have been able to promote the charities and increase awareness of what they do and where they are, and assist in a small way with some of their repairs and maintenance.
