Tim’s first humanitarian aid trip to Zimbabwe was in 2006, after learning about the challenging and tumultuous environment so many people of Zimbabwe faced. He learned of the difficult life Zimbabwe people deal with through a chance encounter at an area dry cleaning store with Sabhera, a woman who would become his friend. She was married to a man who had left Zimbabwe years earlier to find a better life in the United States, and shared some of the sad and even horrific stories with Tim.
The more Tim learned about those suffering in Zimbabwe, the more determined he became to help – he quickly learned how to overcome his own lack of experience or resources – and the foundation was formed in 2006. From that first trip in which he purchased and distributed nearly six truckloads of maize meal, donated groceries and personal hygiene items to hundreds of families, and assisted financially in numerous other ways – to the trip in 2014 when the 10th well was drilled – he has made a difference.
With remarkable determination, Tim continues this success, committed to ensuring safe and clean drinking water for the villages.
