The Zimbabwe Aid Fund UK (ZAF) raises money and sources medical equipment and supplies for the destitute elderly in Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwe Aid Fund UK (ZAF) has been established for the purpose of raising money for food and sourcing medical equipment and consumables to support the pensioners in Zimbabwe. The plight of the elderly is one of the less publicised outcomes of Zimbabwe's social, economic and political collapse. There are a number of facilities for the aged spread throughout Zimbabwe, most of which are dependent on various levels of external funding to survive. Whilst the raising of funds for food is vital, of equal importance is the provision of medical services. Most of the medical facilities in Zimbabwe are run down. There is a lack of trained staff, a shortage of funds for medicines and consumables and most of the equipment is extremely old with many items being unserviceable as there are not the funds, skills or spare parts to repair them.

Charity No: 1144880
