UK fundraiser for child refugees

JOHANNESBURG A Zimbabwean organisation based in the United Kingdom 1 million Zimbabwean Voices, has lined up fundraising shows meant to give humanitarian assistance to disadvantaged Zimbabwean children, including those living inside Johannesburgs Central Methodist Church.

An official from the organisation, which is already involved with the church and has established a football academy for children attending the church-funded St Albert School, this week told The Zimbabwean that the UK fundraising show is part of its global fundraising events meant to assist the children with some of their basics.

The first fundraising show, slated for Leicester on September 25, 2010, will begin at 12pm and run till late, with a cocktail of events set to take place. There will be a family day out, various types of entertainment, networking and the programme will culminate in a night party, said Barbara Nyagomo, the organisations Director. The event, whose entry fee is 5, will include a Music Disc Jockey from a Zimbabwean internet radio station, a Leicester-based Zimbabwean traditional dance group from Matabeleland.

The show is just one of the many events we have planned, which are meant to raise funds for, among other beneficiaries, the Zimbabwe refugee children at Methodist Church, their school and their football academy. We also seek to help school children at Magura Primary school, in Chiendambuya, Rusape and will use some of the funds sourced to ship two truck-loads of reading books donated to us to Zimbabwean schools for the benefit of Zimbabwean school children.
