  • Dear Mr Benyon

    No words can describe our thanks to you and to the ZANE donors for all your financial assistance that you have us with our mother Mrs Helen Briggs who up to the moment of her death on Saturday night was staying at No 4 Beit Wing at the Edith Duly Hospital nursing home in Bulawayo.

    God is god in giving us such wonderfully caring people as you and you carers and donors whose concern for others is so praiseworthy and unbelievably kind.

    My wife and I will be eternally grateful to you for all you assistance as it was a constant concern to us as to how we were going to continue to look after Mum, ourselves being pensioners and we didn’t have the facilities in our small house in Gwanda, 145 miles from Bulawayo, where there are no functioning medical facilities of hospital and she was so very comfortable in her own room at Edith Duly, so thanks to your help she spent the last years of her life in comfort and free from worries about finances.

    Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts for all you help. We pray that the Lord will continue to to bless you. I know there are many people who are grateful for all you kindness and concern.

    Our fondest regards

    George and Mary Briggs

  • “I want to thank you very much for offering to pay for my rent and medication.
    It is nice to know that there is someone who cares about the welfare of other people and yet is so far away. I prayed and Jesus heard me from above and you are the answer to my prayer. Indeed you are clothed in compassion and kindness”


  • ” I wish to give you my most sincere thanks for the wonderful work you are involved with in England and consequently the help being given to me through ZANE. I am unfortunately a widow aged 87 years and with the ever increasing cost of living rising in such huge amounts, it is all very worrying. With your wonderul assistance, I am so relieved to be able tnow to spend my declining time here free of financial worries”


  • Dear ****,

    From the bottom of my heart I thank you and all who help to bless me. I don’t take it lightly what you do for me, but there are no words that could ever express the gratitude and love I have deep in my heart. Only God knows what’s in my my heart. I take this time to wish you, your family and all who assist a merry Christmas and a very blessed New Year. God Bless You.
