 What Ever Happened to the Container We Packed Full of Love and Goods and Sent off to Zimbabwe Last Fall?  

You are invited to a dessert evening  at White Rock Baptist Church Sunday April 27th at 6:30 to find out.  

 Susan has many stories along with pictures to share regarding the  distribution of the many articles collected by the White Rock Baptist Church and the White Rock / Surrey communities, along with huge help from the Nanoose Evangelical Church and Compassionate Ministries. 

We were all involved one way or another.  Come and see what changes we have made in the communities of Zimbabwe. 

Susan is also telling her stories and showing pictures at the White Rock Community Church May 28th at 12 noon (Seniors Program). Please contact Susan if you plan on attending so the church can plan accordingly. 

Watch our new video!

We have just released a brand-new documentary video recorded in Zimbabwe during my last trip. It will bring you up to date with what Zimbabwe Gecko Society has been up to and our future plans. We invite you to watch.

It's currently on our YouTube channel, and it will be added to our website very soon. For now please click here to watch the video (you will be brought to our YouTube Channel). Please share it via Facebook and email with friends, family, colleagues, business acquaintances, etc. We would really appreciate your support in spreading the news.
