Zimbabwe Project. You will be delighted to hear that on March 23, we were able to send US $4,420.00 off to the Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa in Mutare, Zimbabwe.
These funds will be used directly by the Sisters who, together with the recipients, will determine the priorities for spending, probably including continued tuition fees for the nearby vocational school. Sister Eunice will provide a report on the proceeds in due course.
A great “Thank You” for your generosity and loyalty to this program, particularly given that the project is unable to provide tax receipts as it is not registered as a charitable organization.
If you would like more information or are able to help, please fill out your cheque to “Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa”, and give or send it to Marianne Czerwinski, 3744 West 18th Ave Vancouver, V6S 1B2 or email at marianneczerwinski AT You may also give it to Michael Redding, 3335 West 39th Ave., Vancouver, V6N 3A3 or email at michaelredding AT
