Things will be heating up soon as the elections in March approach.
Inflation is now so high that it can't be measured anymore, particulary as there is nothing to buy in the shops.
I and my friends at Matopo Primary School are so grateful for the help ETAS has provided so far--and for whatever support readers of this blog can offer, thank you so much.

As you can see, the news gets worse and worse...there have even been rumours of a civil war. As much as I would like to see the back of Mugabe, a war would certainly affect our friends at Matopo in the worst possible way.
I hope you will all join me in continuing our support for Matopo--they need it more than ever!

Things are set to get even more miserable in Zimbabwe. The Economist reported that it is the fastest shrinking economy in the world! But thanks to our support, the teachers at Matopo Primary School see a small ray of hope, enough to keep several of them from leaving the country. Seeing that kind of courage, I feel we MUST go on helping.
Please feel free to place your comments, no matter how brief, and a few words of moral support!

Mr Patson Mpofu recently sent me an email, though, where he said: "We will never surrender Zimbabwe...we will never give up on our children's future..."
With these words he gave me heart to keep trying to help Zimbabwe's children, despite the odds.
If you would like to help with financial support, or with donations of materials, please get in touch with me! Any small help is very welcome and much appreciated.
