Main Focus Projects
Since its beginning, The Bridge International has raised funds for a variety of individuals, families and institutions. The situation in Zimbabwe is very unstable and changes all the time but because we are small, flexible and relational, we have been able to meet a variety of needs through different projects.
Our main focus projects are: The Good Shepherd, Gogo Feeding Sheme and The Presbyterian Clinic.
The Good Shepherd
Good Shepherd Monthly Food Pack: Continue to provide monthly groceries and stationery to Good Shepherd Centre. The cost of food has gone up tremendously in the past year from £350 approximately a month to over £500.
Gogo Feeding Scheme
Another project we would like to begin is feeding local gogos (widowed grannies).
We are hoping to begin with providing a basic food pack for 10 gogos at a cost of approximately £40 per month each.
Most gogos will have at least 3 children, street children or other dependents they are supporting, so this will be a life line to about 40 people.
The Presbyterian Clinic
This is a local clinic attached to the Presbyterian Church in Chinhoyi which does a remarkable job in the community. It seems to be one of the only clinics in the area that is proactive and effective despite very meagre facilities and resources.
We have raised over £15,000 for basic equipment but are praying for new sponsors to consider this as a project.
Small Grants for Crisis
Support individuals and families in distress with small grants and services.
