Like everywhere, it has been a very challenging time in Southern and Eastern Africa. However, it’s because of the generosity of our donors that we have been able to quickly adjust our plans and continue supporting our communities and teams. Thank you for showing us that it’s possible to make impact from anywhere in the world. We are so for your undying support, whether near or far.
This fight is long from over - daily COVID-19 cases across the continent are still rising, but we hope with you by our side that we will be able to make it through anything that comes our way. To continue helping our communities and teams, please make a donation here.
