Story

At the end of August, Jane and I, along with our dog Moses, will set off on another sponsored walk for ZANE. Little did we know when we undertook our first walk from London to Edinburgh, that some thirteen years later we would still be walking for ZANE, having clocked over 2,900 miles.

It is the unwavering support and encouragement of you, ZANEs loyal supporters, that drives us to continue walking. That, and because the situation in Zimbabwe is more desperate now than it was when we first started walking thirteen years ago. We simply cant afford not to walk; the hungry and helpless in Zimbabwe rely on ZANE to survive.

Life in Zimbabwe is a devastating cycle of fighting for survival. With elections looming next year, the fight is likely to get harder. So we walk to put food in the cupboards of impoverished pensioners; to provide them with basic medication for hypertension, diabetes, asthma; we walk to show them that they have not been forgotten. We walk to send a message that we understand, it could so easily be us.

Please know that we never take for granted the loyalty and generosity of ZANE supporters; it is your donations that make our work possible. Funds raised are spent cautiously and methodically by our dedicated and steadfast team in Zimbabwe.

Thank you
