Zimbabwe Civic Solidarity Fund

The shrinking of democratic space in Zimbabwe is a cause for concern. Zimbabwe is witnessing an increased purge of social and political activists demanding economic and political change. In the quest to silence dissent the regime in Zimbabwe has embarked on massive arrests and convictions of economic and political activists.

The military government in Zimbabwe is trying to make an example on those who dare raise their voices to demand justice & accountability. Unless we stand together, there is no hope.

It is in light of these developments that the Zimbabwe Solidarity Network is sourcing resources towards the welfare of state's victims and their immediate dependents.

The resources we anticipate to go a long way in helping families who are plunged into difficulties following these purges and those orphaned due to political activism. We look forward to provide food, Family or households economic strengthening, school fees and medical support.

WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THE FUND?
 
- To assist political detainees with basic amenities eg food and sanitary supplies. 
- To ensure that the immediate families of political detainees have food and educational support.

WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of concerned Zimbabweans based in North America. We are currently in the process of registering a non-profit Zimbabwe Solidarity Network (ZSN).  Currently the fundraising team includes
- David Siampondo
- Taku Rukuni
- Freeman Chari
- Thandi Ncube

HOW WILL THE SUPPORT REACH INTENDED BENEFICIARIES
We have a network of volunteers within Zimbabwe who are going to ensure that the support reaches the intended beneficiaries. We will also work hand in hand with organizations and lawyers who have access to those detained.

HOW WILL WE ACCOUNT?
We will periodically publish the names of the beneficiaries and where possible have them acknowledge the support.
