Broad Objective

The broad objective of the Trust is ˜to provide food, medical and other practical assistance for the benefit of persons who, in the opinion of the Trustees, are poor, needy and destitute, including (but without limitation thereof) refugees and persons displaced as a result of victimization and political and social circumstances".

With this as the basis the Trustees have agreed that whereas the essential primary focus would continue to be directed to pensioners from Rhodesia and Zimbabwe who reside in the Western Cape and who are identified as being in real financial need, consideration would now be given to Rhodesians and Zimbabweans residing permanently in the Western Cape who were not specifically members of a pension fund, but who have retired and are over the age of 65 and who are now proven to be in real financial need. This extension of the operating mandate will be subject to the availability of funds and successfully satisfying the requirements of the detailed financial means questionnaire and is for persons who have lived or worked in Rhodesia or Zimbabwe for at least twenty five years after their education phase.
