We are encouraged to note that despite the Grand Priory of Zimbabwe being woefully short of members through a significant number who were not being able to return to the country after an international lockdown, the remaining few have managed to hold ‘social distanced’ prayer meetings and also to distribute food parcels to elderly folk.

“In a country seriously afflicted with political uncertainties, ongoing factional violence, a shattered economy, widespread poverty and unemployment as well as one of the few leper sanatoria left in Africa, the challenges of undertaking meaningful humanitarian work are enormous,” says Grand Prior, Brian Heathcote.

But true to their vows, the few members of the Order currently in Zimbabwe soldier on to do what they can and are to be commended for their efforts.
