African charity ZANE was established by Tom Benyon. Although not African himself and even though he has never lived in Zimbabwe, Tom was touched by the plight of the people in this African country and felt that he had to do something about it. Hence he set up the African charity ZANE.

ZANE has the support of many high-profile figures from government and the media - John simpson, John Humphrys and the former minister for Africa Lord Malloch Brown among many others.

ZANE stands out among African charities as being excellent at getting donor money to those who need it. None of the money that you donate goes near corrupt officials.

If you are looking to support an African charity, please consider ZANE.

ZANE is a small African charity and therefore a very efficient way to donate money to help Zimbabwe. Please donate today by clicking here.

The cost of care. . . ZANE has no offices and employs only a small staff in the UK. There are no middlemen and there is no waste.
