We were travelling to Zimbabwe in September 2016 for a month’s safari and decided to try to take something with us for a bush school in the Hwange area. I found the Pack for a Purpose website and made contact, we asked our colleagues at Terminal 4 Heathrow to assist us in collecting supplies, and we were blown away by their response.
We ended up taking 40 kgs worth. Kenya airways were brilliant in assisting us in having way too much luggage. We met with Obert Manyeza from African Bush Camps Foundation and he took us to two schools in the area. We handed over the supplies and they were delighted.
We are now in the process of seeing what else we can assist them with. It was an amazing experience, and we really hope we can do more to assist. Thank you for making this possible as well. What a brilliant idea and so easy to do.
