Lunch Meeting: Savah's Ark - Making a Difference in Rural Zimbabwe

 

Tuesday 9th May


The guest speaker at Sydney Rotary Club of Tuesday 9th May will be Sydney Rotary Club member, Bernard Macleod.

In April 2016 Bernard visited Zimbabwe with a friend to see first hand the problems facing the country specifically in the area of orphaned and vulnerable children. Whilst there he met a remarkable man called Kiverson Savah who had been running a community based programme to support disabled and orphaned children in his district. This programme was not funded by any organisation and lived off the kindness of the locals and the use of a disused beer hall.  
Mr Savah invited Bernard to visit his centre - named the Matthew Chitemamuswe Life Skills Rehabilitation Centre. On seeing this one man un-funded NGO at work Bernard decided to endeavour to fund his efforts to support the centre and its work through raising money from Australian benefactors.
 
Twelve months on over $70,000 has been provided to running the centre; it now supports over 400 children in the region in the form of supplemental feeding, life skills training, community education and advocacy. A key part of this fund raising was the involvement of RAWCS (Rotary Australia World Community Service) allowing for tax deductible giving.
 
Bernard, who returns from his latest trip to the centre at the end of April, will give an update on the progress in the last year, the impact of the funds that have been received, and share with members the vision for the future.
