Eyes 4 Zimbabwe

Oct 8, 2012 by

If you are looking for personal or group service project and live within driving distance of the LDS Humanitarian center and or the Land Air Express building in Salt Lake City here is a great way you can help those in need. Please note: the deadline for deliveries is THIS WEDNESDAY, October 10, 2012.

“It has been estimated by the ‘World Food Program’ that two million Zimbabweans face starvation. The food crisis comes at a time the ‘Meteorological Services Department’ has predicted drought during Zimbabwe’s traditional farming season from October 2012 to around March 2013, and have advised farmers to plant drought-resistant crops to minimize the impact of poor rainfall as another severe drought looms.”
‘The Independent Newspaper’ September 14, 2012
