We are appealing to the community of Victoria Falls to assist in raising funds to assist flood victims in the Tokwe Mukorsi Basin area. There is a real threat of the dam wall collapsing anytime due to the excessive                 rains in the area and there is a need to evacuate and relocate the communities that are at risk. Here is an opportunity for our wonderful community to stand up and assist our fellow countrymen/women at this crucial             time. We have rallied together in the past to raise funds for a number of initiatives and we believe this is a noble cause which will help to save the lives of many people.

We are thankful for some local companies that have already made donations. Anne Taggart and Claire Wright will be setting up collection bins at various points in the town and your help would be appreciated. We             are looking to get a centralised account so that funds are accounted for and passed on to the relevant people.  Many of you know Clive Stockhill from the lowveld and he is spearheading attempts to raise funds.                 Should you wish to assist via this platform, please send an e-mail and you will be given the necessary details. No amount is too small and when we work together we can achieve much!

Have a pleasant day, Yvonne Jandles
