We pray you are all staying safe and well as we enter into a new year still very much in the midst of the pandemic. We are mindful of those in the Zimkids community battling with job losses, loneliness and grief in this time.

Please know we value you and we are praying for you, please do drop us a line to let us know how you're doing.

The Faces of Epworth & Hopley

During the Summer, Coronavirus grounded Zimbabwean student Chloe Cowley back in her home town Harare for a good few months and we are so pleased it did. Chloe contacted us and asked if she could sensitively and appropriately document some of our work and produce a short film. The result is outstanding and summarises our self-sufficiency project so well.
