We are delighted to be acting as Friends of Hwange’s fiscal sponsor in America. Recently, some of our donations funded much-needed medical supplies and drugs for the clinic that supports the park’s staff and their families. We received news last week that the supplies arrived safely and were handed over to the Sister in Charge of the clinic.
Friends of Hwange, formed on the back of of a drought in 2005, works hard to ensure adequate water supplies for the wildlife of the park. Hwange has very little natural surface water and water has to be pumped through boreholes to ensure the survival of the multitude of species that call the park home.
More recently, FOH has expanded its work to include anti-poaching and animal rescue operations, clearance of firebreaks, maintenance of access roads, research and providing adequate medical support for the Park’s staff and their families.

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity, from both us at Empowers and everyone at Friends of Hwange.
