There are only about 20,000 British citizens now living in Zimbabwe out of what was once approaching 300,000. We are very concerned for those who are economically stranded there with no funds to jump on a flight to the United Kingdom.
We remain especially concerned for those who supported the U.K. during the Second World War and who are now in their late 70's and 80's, many of whom were encouraged to settle in Rhodesia by the British Government in 1945.
A number of elderly people are now in old age homes, institutions which are desperately struggling to cope financially. The plight of these good people is not improving.
