Regular health checks by doctors and registered nurses and community health education
Vimba is also involved in a number of community projects including partnering with schools and orphanages to support vulnerable children. We invest in building new schools, providing clean drinking water through drilling boreholes, and completing sustainable community development projects. As life in Zimbabwe is becoming more challenging we have also started working on supporting the mental health of communities to cope with devastating circumstances.
Vimba’s London arm focuses on fundraising whilst the Zimbabwean team controls the distribution of food and supplies and provides vital feedback and direction. Vimba is run by a group of passionate volunteers. We strive to achieve maximum benefit from every donation by maintaining extremely low fixed overheads.
Vimba is incredibly appreciative of the financial support and help from Zimbabwean diaspora and their friends and families. We aim to increase our presence through partnerships whilst maintaining our grass roots ideology. We are looking to partner with like-minded corporations who want to make a difference in Africa. Corporate support from companies means we can have a bigger impact and complete larger and longer-term projects.
