Friends of Kids in Zimbabwe is a UK based charity trust that is registered with the Charity Commission (registration number 1135503). Their intention is to provide financial and other support to children in Zimbabwe suffering from any form of life threatening disorders or disability.
Donations made can be specifically for a charity or given for use for whichever charity they have an appeal from.
They have been supplying grants to Kidzcan in Zimbabwe to help cover costs of the essential chemotherapy drugs, and diagnostic testing. Many of the drugs used are sourced in the UK and so Friends of Kids in Zimbabwe has been buying drugs in the UK, for the patients in Zimbabwe. Money may also be sent directly to Zimbabwe from time to time to cover drugs, scans or other procedures required for the diagnosis and treatment of the children with cancer. They are currently assisting the following children’s charities in Zimbabwe:
- The Autism Organisation of Zimbabwe
- The Children's Heart Foundation in Zimbabwe
- The Epilepsy Support Foundation
- The Zimbabwe Brain Tumour Association
- The Zimbabwe Haemophilia Association
If you would like to support them, you can deposit money directly into their bank account or through Virgin Money Giving.
