    Weʼve raised £3,500 to Save Edwin

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Edwin is 22 and lives in a remote village in Zimbabwe. He lives with his family who he supported before this growth developed in his neck. Edwin is in constant pain and can no longer work as a cattle herder, meaning that he and his family are living on only what they can grow to eat and have no access to medical help.

    We are urgently trying to raise £2,500 for Edwin to have the surgery he needs to have this tumour removed, without which he will die. He is already struggling to eat and is fearing for his life. It would be fantastic to help Edwin and see him able to support his family once again.

    Last year we raised over £2,000 for another Zimbabwean lady to have life saving surgery, which was a complete success, and it would be wonderful to do the same for Edwin.

    Why Edwin? Edwin lives in a neighbouring community to the Imire Rhino & Wildlife Conservation Reserve, who try their best to support their community. In doing so, the community support the Rhino Conservation Project, helping to keep poachers away and protect the rhino, elephants, giraffe and antelope on the reserve.

    Please please help me to save Edwin. All we need is a small donation from many people - we have done this before and we can do it again!!

    Many thanks,

    Zoe :)

      I'm happy to say Edwin is in a stable condition today after an 8 hour operation yesterday to remove the tumor. He will remain in ICU for for a few days receiving blood. The next few days will be critical but things have gone to plan so far.

      Thanks to your amazing donations, Edwin is now in surgery in Harare. I will post another update as soon as I hear more news. It's going to be a tense 24 hours so we're keeping everything crossed for Edwin. Thank you all again for making this happen.

      After some frustrations, such as wasted hospital trips with scanners breaking down and transport problems due to heavy rainfall, Edwin finally had his next lot of scans and consultations with the oncologist today. Huge thanks to Judy Travers for her hard work, being there and getting things moving again (and for giving Edwin a lovely Imire top)! Edwin's growth has worsened and is now bursting through his skin. He is now on the fast-track list for surgery, which is more expensive but necessary given his condition. Please keep sharing, thanks :)
