ZANE: Zimbabwe A National Emergency
ZANE provides aid and comfort to destitute people in Zimbabwe. Its main focus is supporting elderly people; those who lost their pensions and savings when the Zimbabwean economy collapsed and are now entirely dependent on charity to survive.
ZANE provides aid to around 1,800 destitute elderly people, including over 600 war veterans and their widows. It assists with rent, medical bills and food. However, there is also a desperate need to support children and young people, particularly in helping them gain an education so one day when the situation in Zimbabwe improves, they will be able to work and help re-build the country.
ZANE funds a clubfoot correction programme and to-date has treated over 3,550 children – enabling them to walk and live a life free from disability. ZANE also runs creative therapy projects to help women and their families who have been victims of political violence, abuse, and extreme poverty. ZANE also funds education projects including pop-up classrooms in high density townships.
