Pioneer Descendants and Members of The Pioneers Society are now scattered to all corners of the world. Wherever they are they can be proud of their Heritage, their History and resilience.
It is in keeping alive this History and our Heritage that we The Pioneers Society,(Custodians of this History) send out this URGENT appeal to you all, PLEASE make whatever DONATIONS, of any amount you can, to help us survive, as well as to keep the fires burning..
Reminder also that children, Grand Children, Great Grandchildren etc are also eligible
to become members. Application Forms available from The Pioneers Society.
The current cost of Life Membership and Scoll is USD $ 55 each. This does not have to be paid all at once, especially if there are several members to be registered., It can be paid in instalments, which can be arranged to suit you.
The Society finds itself, from being financially sound and independent, to being destitute. The funds of The Pioneeers Society were completely lost, (due to the removal of an additional TWELVE ZEROS from the Zimbabwean Currency in February 2009). We are now unable to meet the basic functions of our office ie electricity, Council rates / water, or telephone as well as staff wages and salaries.
This disaster also affected many of our elderly people who became penniless and now have to rely on hand-outs or assistance from Family Members, friends or Charitable Organisations.
We are no longer able to assist members with financial assistance as we do not have any finance and are in a critical situation.
In order to minimise the HIGH costs of transferring funds, (normally a minimum charge of approx USD $ 35 at the Transferring Bank) it is suggested that any funds originating from outside Zimbabwe should be accumulated in a designated account in the country of origin. PLEASE, URGENTLY ADVISE DETAILS IF YOU WOULD BE PREPARED TO ALLOW THE USE OF YOUR PERSONAL ACCOUNT FOR THIS PURPOSE before transferring funds in bulk to our USD $ Foreign Currency Account in Bulawayo.
