The Commercial Farmers’ Union’s AIDS Control Programme was run by a commercial farmer’s wife, Kerry Kay, on a voluntary basis after she accepted the position of Project Manager in 1995. This
programme was judged by UN AIDS as the best of its type internationally and it has been used as a model for other projects. Here Kerry comforts the blind wife of a farm worker displaced by the devastating farm invasions.

The Mike Campbell Foundation’s school fees project began in 2006 with just 15 pupils, mostly children of former farm workers, with the support of friends and well-wishers. In 2017, with additional funding support, the MCF was able to pay the fees of 226 children in the Chegutu district, the majority of whom are in primary school.
