  • OLDIES FOOD BOXES – Just a reminder that we are starting to collect for our July “Oldies” food boxes.  If you would like to drop off something for our “Oldies” this month please feel welcome to do so.  Remember anything helps big or small.  Thank you to those who do help when u can, it is very much appreciated.  For more info please email me on gover@yoafrica.com thanks Cathrina


  • FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE NEEDED – A message asked to be forward to any friends that would like to assist.  Tim Braybrooke has just returned back from Bulawayo after having surgery on his Throat for cancer.  Despite some financial assistance given by an aid agency in Bulawayo for what was deemed to be a small op and a stop of a few hours in hospital, it appears the procedure was bigger and has therefore cost more than the $1550 to $1600 that Tim has, with the aid, raised.

At the moment there is going to be shortfall on the Mater Dei hospital fees, very possibly too on the anesthetist bill plus the follow up costs for the surgeon which are not known. If radium treatment is prescribed which now appears almost a certainty it has to be done in Harare and the oncologist (?) charges to start with I have been told is $1800. Then there are obviously miscellaneous expenses such as bus fares to and from Harare, chemist bills and everything else that goes with the treatment to be thought of…..

I just don’t know what the overall costs might amount to but, I do appeal for financial assistance for Tim, he is in an awful and unenviable predicament – please help. Donations can be made directly into Tim’s bank account If you would like to make a payment please email me on gover@yoafrica.com and I will pass on his account details.  Regards  Cathrina
