KARIBA ANIMAL WELFARE FUND TRUST IN CONJUNCTION WITH ZIMBABWE PARKS & WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT
Parks and Wildlife Authority Charara Safari Area have not had Tents for some years now. With the rainy season upon us, this is a critical need to enable them to fully carry out their bush patrols through the rainy season.
Bearing in mind the vast area they have to cover to ensure the safety and welfare of our Wildlife, is from Makuti through to Kariba, covering down to the Zambezi River and across to Matusadona side of the lake, past Gache Gache up to Sanyati and the area behind, until it breaks into communal land.
Due to this being an important necessity, KAWFT purchased 3 light weight tents for samples (pictured below) to see if they were adequate and acceptable. They were acceptable. So because of the very desperate need for these, we went ahead and ordered a further 27, making the total 30.
These 2 man tents cost $40.00 each making a total of $1080.00 for the 27.
SWIFT have again, kindly covered the cost of the 3 samples that they transported up and are covering the cost of the 27 that should be in Kariba by the middle of this coming week.
We are now putting out the plea for anyone who is able to donate back towards the cost of these tents. Be it $5.00 or $10.00, the full cost of 1 tent $40.00 or for a number of tents.
It all helps towards the cost of helping the Guardians of our Wildlife conduct their work as expected.
Our contact details are below the pictures, if you are able to help with the cost of these tents.
Once in use, the tents will be checked every few months for any repairs that need to be done in order to keep them useable.
