Blevins Franks Donate to World Vison

Since the introduction by World Vision of child sponsorship, a programme is underway for constructing schools, clinics and water pumps. People are being trained to dig healthy pit-latrines as poor sanitation is the cause of many illnesses.

London, United Kingdom, September 06, 2008 --( Last Christmas, instead of sending Christmas cards, Blevins Franks made an equal donation to the ‘Hurungwe Area Development Programme’ in Zimbabwe.
The money donated bought 500 exercise books and chalk for schools within the area of the project.

The project which is co-ordinated by World Vision is to help the people of Hurungwe which is a remote rural area 300km north of Harare. The people there are subsistence farmers who often struggle to grow enough food.

World Vision is supporting awareness activities that will reduce the high rate of HIV infection in the region. The many orphans are supported in continuing their schooling.

Project staff are training local leaders to develop their community, providing them with the skills required to teach local people better methods of crop production to enable them to earn a better living.

Blevins Franks Phil Richards, Head of Micro Business received a personal note of thanks from the children together with a photograph of some of the children in receipt of the donation . You can view these at
