Collectively the UK Trustees represent a considerable experience of living and working in Africa, and Zimbabwe in particular. Three of the Trustees have served as mission partners in the country, appointed by the Methodist Church of Britain.
Retired Methodist Minister, David Winwood is the Chairman. Graham Shaw is a Methodist minister now serving in Swanage, Dorset. Glenys Blackmore is the Secretary and Christine Jones the Treasurer, and their details appear on the "Contact Us" page.The Zimbabwean Trustees, who work closely with the UK Trustees, operate through a team of trusted volunteers on the ground, including pastors and community leaders living and working among the poorest of the poor.
When the Zimbabwe Victims' Support Fund was started in 2002 none of those involved anticipated that the country would still be in deep crisis all these years later. In fact the suffering today is just as widespread and intense, and still there remain huge areas of desperate need which are not being met either by the United Nations or international aid organisations.
We are profoundly grateful therefore for the window of opportunity God has given us to meet some of these needs, making a real difference to the lives of many thousands of Zimbabwe's most vulnerable people. We are also very appreciative of the amazing generosity of our donors who, by their sacrificial giving, sustain this pinprick of light on the dark canvas of suffering.
The UK Trustees are actively engaged in seeking charitable status for the Fund in order to obtain the benefit of Gift Aid for those donors who are taxpayers.
