Weʼre raising £2,800 to get Esnut the surgery she desperately needs

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


I recently visited Zimbabwe and while delivering clothes to a struggling village I met Esnut, a 57 year old wife and mother, living in the rural village with few means.

Esnut has thyroid goiters, enlargement of the thyroid gland. This is a very treatable condition which she urgently needs surgery for.

Sadly Esnut and her family have no means to raise these funds for her surgery. With unemployment nearing 90% and farm wages less than $4 USD per day, the only hope she has is this campaign.

Please help me to raise the funds for Esnut's surgery. It will save and change her life and that of her family.

Thank you.

    Cake Bake Success!!! I'm so happy to say that we raised an amazing £147 from the cake bake sale and with an extra £20 donation we now have £167 to add to the fund! :) Thank you to Everyone at Pell Frischmann for their support, especially those who contributed cakes and those who ate lots!! :) I am sending the funds (rounded up to £200) straight to Zimbabwe, where it will go directly to the hospital and taxi company to get Esnut her first appointment. I have therefore reduced the target on this page by £200. Well done everyone! :)

    20% raised! :) Many thanks to Imire Rhino and Wildlife Conservation who have made this campaign possible. Esnut's village neighbours Imire, who regularly take donations such as children's clothes to the local villages. Imire are kindly handling Esnut's fund to enable us to pay the hospital for Esnut's treatment. Helping Imire's neighbours also benefits the conservation project, as they provide extra eyes in the battle against poaching. Therefore by helping Esnut we are also strengthening the 'neighborhood watch' who help protect the rhino. :)
