Covid-19 Support Lower Zambezi, Zambia2020 - Anti Poaching, Lower Zambezi, Zambia - Donation of US$ 22,250
We made this contribution to the Conservation Lower Zambezi as part of the Covid-19 support programme of the SwissAfrican Foundation. In 2020, Covid-19 stopped almost all operations in the park and funds to maintain the park and support the surrounding community were most welcomed.
With this amount two Community Scouts team and one DNWP Ranger team can patrol the park for 3 months. Included are food, equipment and salary for the Community Scouts. The DNWP Ranger salary is paid by the government.
A first payment of US$ 16,000 was done at the beginning of 2020. We were able to transfer an additional US$ 6,250 in July 2020 as part of our Covid-19 support program for Lower Zambezi NP. We would like to thank everyone who participated in our fundraising campaign!
