Tongogara Drought Relief Feb 2016

Zimbabwe, like many southern African regions, is experiencing a drought. 

Gift of the Givers make their return to Tongogara Refugee Camp where the impact of the drought and dryness is visible for as far as the eye can see and scorching temperatures make daily living terribly uncomfortable. The GOTG team drove approximately 680 km east of Harare carrying 40tons of Water, Food and Hygiene Packs. The village also received a freshly cooked meal, 12 Kids Chairs and 8 Chair for the Seniors.

Although the camp is still home to a very high number of inhabitants it was nice to see many new faces, making it their first experience with the Gift of the Givers team. It was an overwhelming experience for them and, filled with emotions and tears of joy, they sang and danced with such passion that it felt like their "rain dance" caused an outburst of rain. The downpour of didn't hinder the distribution instead was received as a blessing from above.
