IMPORTANT UPDATE

As of July, 2001 Andrew and Samantha's farm has been confiscated. With the compliance of the local police, a gang of "vets" took over the property, buildings, livestock and assets and the farm's owners have had to leave the country with their new baby.

Don't forget that Andrew, Samantha, their parents, siblings, and now their daughter, were all born and raised in Zimbabwe. This is --or was-- their home. This year they faced a bumper crop and had high hopes for the cattle. What will now happen to the employees, their families, the livestock and crops, is unknown. Unfortunately, other farms that have been expropriated have not succeeded.

When hard-working, highly skilled citizens are driven from their own country, they are not the only ones to suffer. The future of everyone connected with this once-thriving farm is now in doubt.

During the last civil war in Zimbabwe, wildlife was ruthlessly poached and slaughtered. We dread to think what will happen to those most majestic and beautiful animals we were so privileged to see.
