Returning from our adventure

Dear readers,
We have returned from our Africa trip, full of stories and amazement. It has been a fantastic experience visiting South Africa and Zimbabwe, the country I grew up in.

There is too much to tell all at once so, just as a whetting of the appetite, here is a pictures of a theatre group, Ingonyama, in Hwange who sang and danced for us all. Eleven years ago we met these young men when the group was just starting out, and it was wonderful to see them again. The group acts and sings, and their realistic impressions of the local animals - elephants included - should be seen to be believed!

The group is always looking for support. Given the Zimbabwean economic troubles of the recent past, it was encouraging to see how things are slowly improving but life is still tough. These men have families of their own and, with everyone living in very small dwellings, it must be incredibly hard. If you think you could help out in any way, please get in touch with me. We would like to support the children in the local Primary School and also the group, if we can.
