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.

 

Past projects have included

  • Local church communities in Bulawayo and Harare: food, and basics, Christmas Meals, street children’s parties, community celebration with a whole cow

  • AIDS patients: fresh vegetables, Bibles and books, basic medicines and vitamins, warm clothes 

  • Rural Teacher Training: stationary, equipment  and training workshop to a school that is extremely limited in its supplie
