I've been asked to promote this website, the friendsofzim.com by a friend who writes
"I don't normally ask those I know to support a cause, but I cannot let
what is going on in Zimbabwe pass without doing something. I am saddened
and angered by the way people who just want the right to vote are being
attacked and intimidated. They shouldn't be ignored. That is why I have
gone to the website www.friendsofzim.com and made a donation. If you could
too then that would make a world of difference to people who have the
courage to fight for a better life. Will you give them your support too?"
I have made a donation, Iain Dale has more information about the website verifying its legitimacy. Only 3 years ago my local UK supermarket regularly stocked produce from Zimbabwe. I remember questioning this at the time... but today the country is decimated without enough food to feed themselves let alone export.
