Since the establishment of LIFENETS SOUTHERN AFRICA nine years ago, Andre van Belkum has served as chairman and his wife Elize as a member of the organisation. He has overseen many projects in Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa and both Andre and Elize will be missed as they relocate to New Zealand.


At the Annual General meeting in July this year Neville Smith was elected as Chairman and Mr Selby Mbelu elected as a member.


The latest project that was initiated by Mr. van Belkum is in the Gokwe area of Zimbabwe. The people living in the area are very poor and struggle to access water. LifeNets has financed the digging of a borehole and also provided a number of goats which have already produced kids.
 

These projects will be monitored and if successful will lead to the introduction of cattle to assist these people with the ploughing of their fields and to provide fresh milk.
