Christmas COVID Emergency Relief: Zambia
£15 will feed a Zambian family for a month.
Thanks to your generosity over the last 1.5 years, we've been able to establish 14 Community Kickstart initiatives across 3 continents, and provide emergency food supplies to trek staff and others across India and Nepal from June through to next February.
Now we want to show our support for our Southern African destination communities, at this time when the return of tourism to many of these countries reamins uncertain.
We particularly focus on Zambia, where the economic impact of tourism's pause is acutely felt across many parts of society, and where NGO activity can be less well funded than in neighbouring countries. This beautiful, warm-hearted country and its communities have hosted us and our travellers so well over decades; now we hope you'll join us in doing what we can to see them through the difficult next couple of months.
Our aim is to raise £4,000 before Christmas - enough to provide a month's worth of food (mealie meal, soya chunks and cooking oil) to:
- The families of 12 of our Zambian guides and other support staff who make our adventures possible
- The families of 250 disadvantaged children who attend a Learning Centre established by our long-standing partner, Baraka Community Partnerships
If your generosity takes us beyond our target, we will be able to extend the reach of this support to other vulnerable families.
100% of your donation will go straight to purchasing and distributing these supplies. Thank you for joining us in standing with our Zambian colleagues and their communities this Christmas.
